etting back to the land was never so easy as it is at Weir River Farm, a scenic (naturally—it’s in Hingham) working farm with open barnyard hours, public feedings, and other fun stuff. There’s also a fall festival and sheep-shearing event, and picturesque hiking trails. Plus, after the kids have made friends with the animals, you can pick up some local dairy products and fresh meat to take home! Oh, wait … Warne

Weir River Farm connects with 5,000 acres of other parks and conservation areas to form the largest contiguous tract of open space on the South Shore.
