Barnyard Stories at Weir River Farm | The Details

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. The farm is part of the statewide conservation organization, The Trustees.

In the barnyard, you will meet our piglets, rabbits, and other furry friends. You’ll have an opportunity to interact with our goats and greet our chickens. This is an immersive experience for all ages. 

After you visit with the animals you are welcome to explore the property and walk the many trails and discover all the nature and wildlife the farm has to offer. We highly recommend packing a picnic lunch to enjoy at the outdoor picnic tables before heading back to the train station.
