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.

There are so many ways to enjoy and support this amazing place. Visit our award winning Bed and Breakfast, an intimate and charming getaway with country style hospitality; attend a special event or wedding at the Barn or Cove Cabin, where magic and memories are made; or simply take a stroll down one of our forested trails, where you can enjoy wildlife and an array of views and vistas along the way. 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 Feast in the Field Event on June 12th – this evening offers a menu of farm fresh goodness, with proceeds supporting a variety of gardening and  growing programs at the Farm, all of which educate, inspire and provide healthy food for our neighbors in need. Don’t miss Cool Jazz on August 7th– this Annual event at Cove Cabin is a RI tradition offering raw bar, lobster, steak and dancing with the incomparable Nancy Paolino & the Black Tie Band as the sun sets over Mount Hope Bay. Our celebrated Camp Wetu summer camp begins on June 20th, with four 2 week sessions designed to entertain while learning and culminating in a family camp-out on the Farm at summers end.

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.
