Tour Watson Farm next week

Historic New England’s Watson Farm will host a special tour on Sunday, Sept. 19, from 2 to 5 p.m.

Don and Heather Minto, farm managers since 1980, will lead participants on a two-mile walk through this seaside working farm. The evolution of the farm itself will be placed in the larger context of the local island community and Rhode Island history.

Tied closely with this tour and discussion of agriculture will be a dialogue on local food production – past, present and future.

The tour begins at 2 p.m. in the Watson Farm barnyard. Cost is $8; $3 for Historic New England members. Please wear appropriate shoes and clothing.

Contact Don or Heather Minto at 423-0005 or Watsonfarm1796@yahoo. com for more information.
