Appleton Farms is a 658 acre working farm in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Established in 1636, it is the oldest working farm in the United States. The Trustees of Reservations acquired the property in 1974 and continues to preserve the lands for wildlife habitats and agriculture. The farm, meadows and forests are a beautiful place to walk anytime of the year. It is also the largest CSA (community supported agriculture) program in New England, with 800 participating families.

I can’t think of a better place than Appleton Farms for an eastern gray squirrel to live.
Lots of nesting boxes and meadows provide great habitat for these birds.
