One of my all-time favorite Rhode Island fall road trip destinations is Adams Farm in Cumberland where a down-to-earth simplicity and lots of fun things to do make the overall experience so special.

Primarily open in the fall and during the Christmas season, Adams Farm is tucked away in a beautiful part of northern Rhode island amidst rolling pastoral fields and close to the spectacular Diamond Hill Reservoir.

Adams Farm feature mums, pumpkins, cornstalks, Indian corn, candy apples, hay and corn mazes, apples, cider, gourds, caramel apples, and the friendliest farm animals (most notably, the goats!). Hayrides through the scenic farmland are another highlight!

Taking a road trip to Adams Farm is like a greatest hits collection of what’s so nice about fall in New England. It’s not a high profile, high-opinion-of-itself type of place, but one of a hard-working family business that is there for only one reason: to bring an enjoyable experience to its customers. Jim Marszalkowski is one of the nicer people I know, and his farm is like an oasis from the fast-paced lifestyle of those living between Boston and Providence.

I can hardly wait to return, take in the special feeling of the New England fall here, and enjoy the relaxing vibe.  Hope you get to visit this wonderful mom and pop business, too!

Editor’s note: Adams Farm is equally appealing during the Christmas holiday season. We have bought fantastic Christmas trees and wreaths here for the past several years, under the big country sky. A blanket of snow really enhances the classic New England scenery here, let’s hope for some this year! We’ll update you at The Thrifty New England Traveler on when Adams Farm will open for the Christmas season!
