Owned by the Patton family (as in Major General George S. Patton), Green Meadows is a certified organic farm covering some 230 acres of rolling New England hillside. Only about 30 acres of this land is actually farmed.
While the farm certainly grows its fair share of fruits and vegetables, the real highlight for us were all the animals! These sheep are kept in pens bordered by solar powered electric fences, which are easy to disassemble and relocate as the sheep graze through a particular patch of pasture.
Green Meadows Farms runs a CSA program, a farm stand and grocery co-op, and on-going events throughout the season. If your summer travels take you through northern Massachusetts, we highly recommend stopping by the farm and taking a tour!
• More information and directions are available on the Green Meadows Farm website.
