I visit Weir River Farm on a regular basis. I love the view from the top of the winding pathway that leads down to the farm. From there, you can see the farm, the ocean, and the skyline of Boston - it always reminds me why I love living in this area with the proximity of farms, the ocean, and... More

Community farms are all the rage these days, but not often are they such a delight to visit. At Weir River Farm, atop a scenic hill from Route 228 in Hingham, a charming pastoral scene unfolds, with the main attraction being the banded galloway cows, which some call "Oreo cows." It's worth a visit to see why, and survey a... More

The trails here are my favorite running spot. It is such a great view from the top of the hill looking down over the cows and across to the Boston skyline. Nothing beats it!

We went for the first time to the Fall Festival, and were very glad we did. Plenty of animals to see and also wreath making, various crafts, pumpkins for sale as well as cider and local honey. Various artists displayed their wares as well - excellent.

Love going here. Just a nice spot and they grow their own veggies which you can buy. I also bought the beef when they slaughtered a cow. NOt so good. The cows graze free on the grass so I thought the beef would be more tender. It wasn't. I bought several cuts and ended up using all the cuts as... More

We visited on a weekend with our two small children and it was lots of fun. There are pigs, horses, chicken, goat and sheep. You can get close to all of them and even pet them. The farm is very family friendly and set in a beautiful landscape. They did charge a $3 entree fee for adults and children over... More

Great place for walks, and they sell their veggies at the Hingham farmer market at the weekend. I love driving by and seeing the animals grazing. They also have open days for kids.
