The Farm Museum consists of two adjoining farmsteads on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, New Hampshire. The historic Jones Farm and the Plummer Homestead were passed down in the same families for two centuries. Today the properties are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and consist of 50 acres of field and forest, a working farm growing heirloom and modern varieties of vegetables, heritage breed farm animals, historic houses and barns, a blacksmith shop, a shoe shop and exhibits on agriculture and rural life. The museum hosts special events, programs, and workshops as part of its mission to preserve, understand and carry forward New Hampshire's agricultural heritage.
This year, the New Hampshire Farm Museum is launching a 20 week CSA to begin the first week of June. Our farmer, Kirk Russell has brought two acres of land under cultivation and we are in the process of becoming a certified organic farm. As it becomes available, we are selling our produce, including salad greens, beans, peas, onions, potatoes, squash, zucchini, and much more - in our Country Store as well as at the Wakefield Farmer's Market on Saturdays. Additionally, we have free range chickens and we sell our eggs as quickly as we gather them.
We are open to the public five days per week - Wednesday through Sunday from Memorial Day Weekend through mid-October. You can buy our produce at our Country Store any time. There is an admission fee to tour the museum and visit our agricultural exhibits.
