One of our favorite Christmas destinations in New England is visiting Adams Farm in Cumberland, R.I., to buy a Christmas tree, have a cup of cider or hot chocolate, say “hi” to Santa and the horses and goats, enjoy the Christmas lights, and take in the beautiful rolling countryside at this unassuming farm.

Sometimes, the simple things in life are most memorable, and that’s what we experience every year at Adams Farm. Owner Jim Marszalkowski is one of the all time good guys, welcoming to all and prideful of his farm that has been in the family since the turn of the century (no, we’re not talking here about the year 2000!). There always seems to be a good stock of Christmas trees in all sizes here and at reasonable prices.

We always feel good supporting local businesses like Jim’s and look forward to having fun under the big sky with a chill in the air and the very nice people here at Adams Farm to warm up the night!
