If you’re looking to do something a bit different on a Cape Cod vacation, the popular destination is home to some unique farms that offer freshly grown goods with something extra. The historic vacation town is home to some interesting farms, some that have been around for over a century. Pack your mud boots and gardening gloves and visit these farms on your next Cape Cod trip.

Taylor-Bray Farm, Yarmouth

The Taylor-Bray Farm is unique because it has been in Yarmouth since the original Plymouth colony. It was started by Ruth and Richard Taylor in 1639 and later purchased by the Bray brothers in 1896. The still-standing farm house was built by Samuel Taylor after the Revolutionary War and is open to the public for tours. Visitors to the farm love walking the boardwalk into Black Flats Marsh and the Sheep Festival that includes an annual sheep shearing and herding demonstration for the public. If you’re staying at a Yarmouth bed and breakfast, the farm is a great nearby attraction.

Cape Cod Lavender Farm, Harwich

The 12 acre Cape Cod Lavender Farm started in 1995 and has quickly become a popular attraction. When you get there, you’ll be greeted by the owner’s two dogs. Along with 14,000 lavender plants, the farm is surrounded by over 60 acres of preserved land with miles of walking trails to explore. After a refreshing walk through the farm and Enchanted Garden, you can purchase lavender infused lemonade and body butter to take home.

Cape Abilities Farm, Dennis

Cape Abilities is a non-profit organization that helps people with disabilities in the Cape Cod area with education, work opportunities, counseling, and social support. The farm is an example of the wonderful work of the organization and is staffed by members. Drop by the farm every day of the week for freshly grown flowers, locally made products, and some of the best tomatoes in the area.

Hokum Rock Blueberry Farm, East Dennis

The Hokum Rock Blueberry Farm is only open in July and August during the blueberry season in Massachusets. The days they are open vary depending on how ripe the berries are, so it’s best to check before you plan on visiting. You can pick your own berries of different varieties at the farm 8-10 a.m. on the days that they are open. The farm also is a beautiful spot for weddings in Cape Cod.
