The rich landscape of New England is beautifully composed of scenic rolling hills and tall hardwood trees such as pine, birch and oak. The area around Princeton, Massachusetts, is no exception, and if one were to drive past Mount Wachusett, one could see, nestled among the foothills,
a farmstead known as Red Fox Farm.
When approaching the main house, one’s eye is struck by the simple lines of a straightforward colonial architecture, and is drawn to the beautifully weathered cedar shake siding, and the colorful period gardens bordered by an old fashioned stone wall fence. The lush and tastefully arranged gardens include such plants and flowers as foxglove, lavender, poppies, primrose and daffodils.
Apple and pear trees are also included,
as well as a large horse chestnut tree.
Red Fox Farm holds a long and varied,
but rich history.
