Tour the Farm

"I've lived here my whole life and had never been to the farm. I am kicking myself for it now!"

Whether you are a Cape Cod native, a wash-ashore or are vacationing on the Cape, a visit to Taylor-Bray Farm is well worthwhile. The Farm has been here since the days of the Plymouth Colony so needless to say, there is history here. But that's not all, take a look around; there's a lot to see and do

Samuel Taylor Farmhouse c1782

The house was built by Samuel Taylor after he returned from service in the Revolutionary War. The house has recently been renovated and furnished with period pieces. There is a rotating display of farm related artifacts in the summer kitchen.

There are picnic tables near the farmhouse should you like to use them.

The farmhouse is closed until further notice.
Watch the website for reopening information.​

Visit the Animals

We have animals. It is a farm, after all. The friendliest animals have to be Henry, George and Dusty, our goats. Chloe is our Scottish Highland cow, reclining in the pasture. Despite her size, she is quite gentle but with those long horns, you don’t want to get too close. Maybe some day, you’ll get a ride in the donkey cart we’re training Sam and Nestor to pull. We have a flock of chickens too. And of course, there are the sheep. Come visit all of them.

Any time is a good time to come but an especially good time is spring when the new lambs arrive.

The Boardwalk and Black Flats Marsh

After you have seen the animals, walk out the boardwalk into Black Flats Marsh. The view into the marsh is largely what Richard and Ruth Taylor saw when they first came to this isolated farm in 1639. The Chapin Beach dunes are to the west or left and beyond them, Cape Cod Bay. The Town of Dennis, once part of Yarmouth, is on the far side of Chase Garden Creek and the marsh. In the spring or summer, you may see osprey nesting on a platform in the marsh about 100 yards to the north of the boardwalk.

Come to a Festival

The best times to visit the farm are during one of our annual festivals.

The Sheep Festival is in June. Watch our sheep being sheared and Border Collies herd the sheep.

In October, enjoy the Fall Festival for hayrides, cider and pumpkins.

In December, come to the farm for your Christmas tree and other holiday goodies.

Don McIntyre Trail

Come to the farm to enjoy the serenity of a quit walk through the woods along the Don McIntyre Trail. Many people come to the farm for festivals bringing children or grandparents and grandchildren to take a hayride along the trail. If you are among those who have been to the farm to walk or for the hayride, you know how pleasant that is.

Taking that walk or hayride was made possible by the foresight and work of one man, Don McIntyre. Don and his wife Lynn were long time farm caretakers. Don loved the farm and created the trail. It is a testament to his dedication to it.

Taylor-Bray Bees

Did you know we are keeping bees here at Taylor-Bray Farm? One of our dedicated volunteers has reestablished a colony along the marsh near the blueberry patch. Our bees help to pollinate the blueberry patch, pumpkin patch and the community garden plants. Farm neighbors also benefit as all the trees and plants in an radius of about three miles are pollinated by the bees.

If you come to observe the hives, be very careful.
Don’t disturb the hives and don’t get stung.

History

While this area has been a farm for almost four centuries, it has been inhabited far longer than that. Recent archaeological work revealed that the site has been seasonally inhabited for as much as 10,000 years. That work greatly enhanced our knowledge of the early farm, its residents and the native people who have inhabited the area for so long. No further fieldwork is planned for the near future.
