Learn about life on a farm over the centuries through hands-on activities. Pump water from the well outside the kitchen or sit in a horsehair-covered rocking chair and look through a stereo-viewer in the nineteenth-century parlor. Become an archaeologist as you piece artifacts together. Explore nature trails, and enjoy a picnic under ancient maple trees. The farm is open on a drop-in basis.
Nature walks, family events, and lectures are held at the farm year-round. Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm visitor center houses a museum gift shop offering books, gifts and local products.
Also nearby are the 1678 Coffin House and the 1670 Swett-Ilsley House, also available for group tours and by appointment. Nearby the 1785 Rocky Hill Meeting House is available for weddings and functions and by appointment.
