Welcome to Mount Hope Farm

Mount Hope Farm is a 127 acre national historic site located in Bristol, Rhode Island.  Mount Hope Farm 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 guests a cornucopia of programs and opportunities to enjoy and explore our history and grounds. 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.


From the Fireside Lecture Series in winter to our Annual Farmfest and October Sunday Educational Walks to our Annual Holiday Gathering each December, every season brings a new way to come together to listen, learn, savor and support this national treasure. Coming in from out of town? Call us in advance to check out our Inn specials and we’ll fill you in on all the good stuff happening here and in downtown Bristol. Are you a new (or long term) local looking to volunteer or get your family on the Farm for some good fun? Check out our Barnyard friends or sign up to learn more about 4H, one of the growing kids programs here on the Farm.


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.
