Open Year Round
On May 31st of 1865, Bradford Boothby, purchased the white cape home and surrounding land on which our orchard and farmstand now exist. His son, Adney, married the girl next door (or across the street in this case), Ellen Martin, whose parents purchased the big farm house in 1849 that became known as Century Elm Farm. These events effectively established the roots of our Livermore family farm which has prospered over the years. Seven generations later, we have much oral and written history, that documents our continual growth and change over the years as we have lived and worked on the land, keeping our farming tradition alive.
We are fortunate to have information from many sources that documents both historical fact and local lore. These sources include maps of Livermore dating back to 1858, a journal from Adney Boothby, that includes his letters home and experience with the 20 th Maine in the civil war, to local records and historical accounts of the town of Livermore, as well as a journal from Rob and Clint's 4 th generation grandfather, Leslie Eustis Boothby, and living oral historians like Robert Coolidge Boothby of Wayne, Norma Boothby, wife of Leslie Bradford Boothby and (Willi (Boothby) Irish who now tells treasured Abenaki stories on occasion for apple pickers of all ages in our cabin by the pond.
