Now part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) Forests and Parks system, Walden Pond State Reservation comprises 335 acres of protected open space, where visitors come to experience the pond that inspired Thoreau. They also come to hike, swim, fish, canoe/kayak, and cross country ski.”

Farm
“Drumlin Farm, was one of my favorite places as a child. I grew up going there. It is the reason Wildflower Farm exists today. It is where I first learned to love barn yard animals and where this dream began. It is much larger than Wildflower, perhaps even better. It will always be a part of who I am and I am to this day grateful for every visit I ever got to make to this place. It's where I first saw and learned how milk comes from cows, and how adorable baby pigs are. It's where I learned to love the smell of farms and fresh hay.”
