Casey Farm

Stewards of the Land

A long view of a white house, carriage house, and shingled agricultural buildings is reflected in still water with dark clouds in the sky.

Many people value Casey Farm for its timeless appearance. Moving through the farm today and with a bit more information, it is possible to absorb the thousands of years of cultivation and presence of the Indigenous Narragansett people. You can read the landscape features like stone walls and cleared fields to appreciate the tremendous labor that went into creating and maintaining them by people over the centuries—enslaved people, farm hands, tenant farmers, and agricultural professionals alike. The living and changing fields and gardens were planned for decades of changing needs by residents, owners, volunteers, and employees.

Learn more about all these types of people, get a window into the past, and find out how we are still planning for the future of this land.
