Thank you to our Friends and Community
We are so grateful for our friends and community who support the historic Daniels Farmstead. Whether you became a new member, visited us at one of our events or farmers markets, explored our new website, or volunteered in the garden or at Doris’s Kitchen, your support has made the world of difference for the future of the Daniels Farmstead.
In addition to the continued day to day upkeep, 2022 is certainly an ambitious year of projects here at the Farmstead, including the goal of a functioning Cider Mill Press using the original reconditioned Model T Engine, and restoration and repair of the main farmhouse windows including application of protective and historically approved storm windows. Additional projects include restoration work on the Corn Crib and Chicken House. These projects are not attainable without the continued support through donations, membership and volunteers.
The Daniels Farmstead is directed by an all-volunteer Board who have devoted hours of time to managing and working towards the continued success of the farmstead.

The Foundation's focus is to provide a place for people to gather, celebrate, and learn the values of a working farm and its traditions.
It is our purpose to protect and preserve the rich historically significant farm and buildings located on pristine New England soil, restore the farm to its former splendor, and operate a living museum where local historians, schools, and the general public can learn about the New England Farm life from the 18th and 19th centuries.
The Daniels Farmstead Foundation, Inc. was founded in 2003 with an all volunteer board of directors to preserve a unique historical resource that has survived the modern age in tact. This remarkable find is due to the efforts of Doris Daniels King and her family to preserve the Farm's history and legacy. The Daniels Farmstead Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
