Farnam Field


Farnam field is 10 acres with forest, a stream, and the majority being a field maintained as a hay field. The property abuts town open space which is also hayed. The property has among the best views in town looking down upon the MacKenzie Reservoir and across the valley to Gouveia Vineyards.

During the spring and summer the grass can be quite long until it is hayed, so stay to the edge of the field and check for ticks after the hike.

The winter, after a snow, is the best time to visit. The open field and gentle hills are great for cross-country skiing, sledding, and snowshoeing. We hold many of our Ski and Snowshoe Hotline events here.
