The NH Farm Museum consists of two adjoining farmsteads situated on 50 acres located on Plummer’s Ridge in Milton, N. H. The historic Jones Farm and the Plummer Homestead date to the late 18th century and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The farms were passed down in the same families for generations. The Museum is open to the public five days per week mid-June through Labor Day and on weekends during the shoulder seasons.
We have a working farm growing heirloom varieties of vegetables for educational purposes. We keep a small selection of heritage breed farm animals to support our educational programs. We have displays of agricultural implements and educational exhibits on rural life and agriculture for the visiting public and our many visiting school children. We offer guided tours of the farm and the historic Jones farmhouse. Special events and programs, workshops, and day camps are offered throughout the year.
The New Hampshire Farm Museum provides a hands-on, farm based experience for students and youth groups exploring New Hampshire’s history and agricultural heritage. Students can tour a working farm, visit an 18th century farmhouse, make butter, feed chickens and explore our barn in the variety of programs offered. Programs can also be tailored to match specific learning goals and adapted to fit curriculum and student interests.
