Howden Farm is a 250 acre working farm in the Berkshires. We grow blueberries, raspberries and sweet corn. Pumpkins are our primary crop - the Howden Pumpkin and the Howden Biggie - which were developed and are still grown here. A flock of chickens provide fresh eggs for your breakfast. In a lovely c. 1830 Greek Revival farmhouse, with outstanding views, three miles from the center of town you may walk the road, hike the fields and/or woods, ride your bike, canoe the Housatonic or just unwind from the world. Sleep with the window open with a gentle breeze. In the winter you can cross-country ski or snowshow, snow permitting. The Berkshires are known as "America's Premier Cultural Resort" and we are close to all these venues. You may enjoy one or all of these events or sights, as well as forty antique shops in the town of Sheffield.
