Farm & Gardens
Preserving our heritage & building community
Summertime is the busiest season at the Dudley Farm Museum with the farmhouse open for tours, gardening activities and the Farmers’ Market in full operation, however the farm does remain active year round. It is a small working farm with livestock appropriate to the late nineteenth century including chickens and hopefully will include other livestock in the future. Early morning and afternoon visitors might watch as fresh eggs are collected from the hens on a daily basis, while maple sugaring occur seasonally.
Available year round, the hiking trails at the farm that connect to Guilford Land Trust trails offer a unique opportunity to enjoy the grounds in the quieter fall and winter months.
The Dudley Farm hosts a flock of chickens. Enjoy a visit next time you come.
We have a total of 19 organic plots which can be leased by members of the community (subject to availability).
Our flower garden has been planted with antique varieties of roses and flowers, including peonies, Dutch iris and daffodils, and is maintained by our volunteers.
The Herb Garden, shown in these photos, was designed and planted in 1997. The garden contains many varieties of herbs commonly found in gardens in the late 1800’s and is anchored by a an antique millstone in the center.
