Great Brook Farm State Park

165 North Road
Carlisle, MA 01741

978-369-6312

Great Brook Farm State Park stands as a jewel in northern Massachusetts! Agriculture has been part of Great Brook's history for centuries. Holsteins have been kept here for over 60 years and current farmer Mark Duffy continues the tradition with his black & white ladies. Native Americans used sections of Great Brook Farm as sacred sites. Seventeenth century cellar holes comprise "the city" where early English settlers worked one of numerous mill sites on the 1,000 acre park.

The park is home to the first robotic milking system in Massachusetts, installed in a state-of-the-art "smart" barn designed specifically for this technology. 

2014 "smart" barn tours for the public and for groups will begin April 19 weather permitting.  Please contact the park office at 978-369-6312, for additional information or to reserve your group's visit.

There are over 20 miles of trails available for walkers, hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. During the winter months, cross-country skiing is available and one trail is lantern lit for a "moon light" experience!
