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.
