Welcome to Mount Hope Farm

Here’s a sneak peek of the farm.

Mount Hope Farm is a 127 acre national historic site located in Bristol, Rhode Island. The property is privately owned and governed by The Mount Hope Trust in Bristol and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to preserve and protect the integrity of its natural assets and its historical structures, and make it accessible to all.

We pride ourselves on offering our visitors a growing selection of programs and activities that meet our mission and enhance their enjoyment and exploration of this historic landscape. Be it attending a special event or wedding at the Barn or Cove Cabin, spending the night at our award winning Bed and Breakfast; or simply taking a stroll down one of our forested trails, the Farm offers something for every palate. Check out our Events listings for great night out opportunities that support the Farm and other local community efforts or join us for our Mount Hope Farmers Market, held every Saturday from 9-1 year-round.

Every season brings a new way to come together to listen, learn, savor and support this national treasure. Mark your calendars now for upcoming Farm events including our October Sunday walks, Annual Farm-fest & Market Celebration on Saturday, October 31st, and our sellout Annual Holiday Gathering on December 4th. While our Camp Wetu summer camp has ended until next year, the Farm continues to offer experiential learning and adventure for children through our 4-H clubs and workshops. Upcoming fall/winter offerings include Cupcake Café (baking and decorating sweet treats), Three Squares (learning to shop and prepare three healthy meals) and Sew What (sewing for fun and for others).  Our regular 4H Club is now full but the Farm is considering adding an additional club to accommodate our waiting list.

This is a landscape steeped in history but with a clear and steady gaze to the future. To achieve our mission, we need YOU to be a part of it. So come on down to the farm real soon and join us as in working together to preserve and protect this special place.

Thank you for your support.
