Adams Farm, in Cumberland, R.I., is a late summer, fall and
early winter destination place you just won't want to leave.
Celebrating the simple joys of life, Adams Farm offers beautiful,
peaceful country farm views, a petting zoo area with goats and sheep,
hay and corn mazes, pumpkin patches, and a small tent-like store that
offers fruits and vegetables, healthy looking plants (especially the
mums), caramel apples, and more farm delights. It is a place where the
sweet smell of fresh air and the postcard-perfect scenes of pumpkins,
white fences and green land define the true meaning of pastoral beauty.
Hay rides are especially nice here. During the Christmas
holiday season, Adams Farm sells an impressive variety of Christmas
trees, but don't wait too long: the secret is out on this hidden back
roads Rhode Island destinations and the trees are selling at a more
rapid pace than in the past. It's a great feeling being out there in
the country with that fresh chill in the air and pine trees saturating
the scenic farm land.
We visited Adams Farm two consecutive days, as we were impressed by its
retreat-like qualities, so close to home. While places like this are
commonplace in Vermont and New Hampshire, they are not in the suburban
Providence, R.I., to Boston. Mass., region. That is why Adams Farm
seems to be all that much more special, as tranquility is only a
stone's throw away from the hectic urban/suburban sprawl that only
seems to be growing too quickly. At Adams Farm, growth only applies to
plant life -- so rich, so pleasing and yet within proximity to what
some to refer to as civilization. It seems to us, however, that Adams
Farm is civilization -- pure, wholesome and natural.
