716 Mooresfield Road, South Kingstown, Rhode Island
In the early 1970s, a farm named The Berry Patch took root in South Kingstown Rhode Island and became one of the state’s very first “pick your own” strawberry farms. Two decades later, the owner’s daughter Sarah Partyka opened The Farmer’s Daughter on the very same land. This heartwarmingly full-circle moment is part of what makes The Farmer’s Daughter such a special place to visit. That, and its perfectly bucolic setting.
The core values of The Farmer’s Daughter are rooted in sustainable agricultural practices, and they operate accordingly. As responsible land stewards, they recognize that healthy crops and plants stem from understanding the interconnectedness of nature, from microorganisms and pollinators to employing the help of beneficial insects and nurturing healthy soil. The entire range of plants and produce cultivated on the farm adheres to these sustainable farming methods, which explains why their output is so phenomenally stunning, between their fields of flowers to the heirloom pumpkins, squash and gourds of every shape, size and color imaginable.
As if all that wasn’t enough, the farm also features greenhouse upon greenhouse full of plants (think fiddle leaf figs, ivy vines, cacti and everything in between), seasonal home decor (most of which is color-coordinated – a dream!) pottery and so much more. Join The Farmer’s Daughter every weekend in October for the Fall Harvest Festival, featuring hayrides, games, a corn maze and plenty of edible goodies like apple cider doughnuts. It’s one of our favorite things to do in the fall.
