Welcome to Mount Hope 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 9am – 1 pm 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 Members Only Burgers & Blues Event on July 12th, our sellout Cool Jazz Event on August 9th and our Annual Holiday Gathering on December 4th. Our Camp Wetu summer camp starts on June 29. With four 2 week sessions, offering experiential learning and adventure, summer camp at Mount Hope Farm will be on every child’s wish list. And keep your eyes posted for some new offerings from our 4H Program this summer; we’ll be putting on some special workshops with topics ranging from Bats to Cupcakes. Our regular 4H Club schedule starts up again in the fall and we’ll be hosting a special sign up session for all interested parents.
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.
