 The Briggs Boesch Farm on South Road has roots going back to 1672. Today, just about every kind of vegetable that will grow in New England, from arugula to zucchini, is rooted in the farm’s rich soil. 

Operated by Erik Eaker along with assistance from his wife Trisha Gardner, Ledge Ends Produce farms more than a dozen acres on the 84-acre site that the National Park Service added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
