Christmas at Adams Farm in Cumberland, R.I.
Article and photo by Eric H.
Sometimes the most simple things in life during the Christmas season bring about the greatest enjoyment. At Adams Farm in Cumberland, R.I., the recipe for getting into the true spirit of Christmas centers on appreciating the beautiful rolling countryside, farm animals (cows, horses, goats), background Christmas music and healthy-looking Grade A Frasier Fir trees, and wreaths for sale. The 2014 Christmas tree selling season begins the first weekend after Thanksgiving.
The experience is pure, wholesome and relaxing, thus providing a proper perspective during a seasonal time that can otherwise get quite hectic, as evidenced by the crowds and parking lot car jostling and horn-beeping at the highway shopping malls and centers within a 15-mile radius of this peaceful oasis. At Adams Farm, you feel like you're a million miles away from civilization, far removed from the more materialistic excesses of our modern-day world.
Adams Farm has been in the Marszalkowski family since the turn of the century (1900, that is), and its current owner Jim Marszalkowski is truly one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. He and his staff will make you feel right at home during this special holiday event, as well as during an equally special time during the fall with hayrides, a large selection of pumpkins and mums, fresh apple cider, delicious candy and caramel apples, and free corn and hay mazes.
VisitingNewEngland.com highly recommends visiting Adams Farm during the holiday season. We discovered this roadside farm several years ago as an alternative to some of the more higher profile farms in the area. The pastoral simplicity, some mighty nice folks, the scenic farmland, fresh air and the many simple but fun things to do keep us coming back year after year during the fall. We're especially delighted that Jim decided to open up the farm for the holiday season, thus adding more instant memories for visitors to this wonderful destination.
