Farm + Gardens

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 sheep, chickens and oxen. Early morning and afternoon visitors might see the oxen yoked and walked to and from their pasture or watch as fresh eggs are collected from the hens on a daily basis, while other activities such as sheep shearing, wool sorting and 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.
