Appleton Farms’ 1,000-acre pastoral landscape sits a mere 25 miles north of Boston. Founded in 1636 by Samuel Appleton and farmed by nine successive generations of Appleton’s it is the oldest operating farm in America. Colonel Francis R. Appleton, Jr. and his wife, Joan, donated the property to The Trustees in 1998.
