Weir River Farm in Hingham MA

A property of The Trustees of Reservations, Weir River Farm in Hingham is a working farm with horses, cows, chicken, and sheep – and a market garden that sells fresh vegetables! Stop by and visit!

Weir River is a working farm, and we need to ensure that our animals get out to graze and enjoy access to the grass. But, we also want to give you the chance to experience Hingham’s last working farm up close.
