Resource Description 

This family-friendly farm—one of the last in Hingham—captivates visitors with its own livestock family of horses, pigs, cows, chickens, and sheep. 

Originally part of the picturesque, early-20th-century country estate of renowned artist Polly Thayer Starr, today Weir River Farm is a 75-acre working farm comprising fields and pastures surrounded by oak and red cedar woodlands. The farm supports diverse wildlife habitats, including upland grasslands, while the Weir River passes through the farm at its northwest edge. A Garden Path bordered by flowering shrubs and flowers within the woodlands creates a serene sanctuary.

With six vibrant working farms, The Trustees understands that local food and farming matter and our programs are designed to help foster an interest in learning about the agricultural traditions in Massachusetts. Join us this summer and discover the joy that comes from a day on the farm! From pizza picnics, barnyard cuddles, concerts, goat hikes and more — you, your friends and family are sure to find an udderly fun event!

The Weir River Farm is newly Autism Welcoming certified. Please visit the website for special programs and everyday accomodations.
