This 150-acre, family-owned, diversified produce farm is located near Providence, RI. 4 Town Farm customers value a “farm experience,” not just fresh food, fabulous flowers or perfect plants.

Farm Experiences – Pick Your Own

Visitors enjoy an authentic farm experience with Pick Your Own (PYO) produce, educational tours and a corn maze. PYO crops include strawberries, fava beans, English peas, raspberries, pumpkins and cut flowers. PYO visitors enjoy tractor rides to the strawberry or pea fields each June. The PYO flower garden is open from late June through September when a hard frost wipes out the flowers. PYO raspberries are available from late July through mid-September. Late in the season, tractor rides bring visitors to a small corn maize and pumpkin patch.

Farm Stand

The rustic farm stand at 4 Town Farm is open daily April through December 23 offering cut trees and wreaths after a long season of fresh produce and cut flowers.   [Read more about the farms diversified operations here.]
