Kentford Farm is a perennial farm in the making. For eighteen years, Paul Coutu and William Turner have been creating grass pathways and planting beds. The farm dates back to 1727, and the previous owner started planting in 1945. Fifty-foot weeping cherries, a Norway spruce, copper beech, and blue Atlas cedar, to name a few, dot this five-acre garden. There is a walk-in root cellar built into the hillside, and stone walls surround the whole property. For more information, visit www.kentfordfarm.com.
