Appleton Farms

History runs deep at Appleton Farms. Founded in 1636 by Samuel Appleton, this thousand-acre farm in the towns of Ipswich and Hamilton, Massachusetts, introduced the Jersey cow breed to North America and is the oldest continuously operating farm in the United States. In 1998, Joan Appleton donated it to The Trustees of Reservations, which still celebrate the farm’s dairy legacy by bottling and producing yogurt and cheese from its rich Jersey milk and operating a dairy store on the farm. In addition to featuring Appleton Farms products at the Boston Public Market, The Trustees are proud to be partnering with The Massachusetts Cheese Guild and its 20+ farms and cheesemakers to showcase the amazing range and quality of Massachusetts cheeses.
