History of Smith Maple Crest Farm

1805-1808
Land was cleared to make way for the barn construction
1808-1837
Dairy cows were raised for milk, sheep for wool, and access to "sugar bushes" were forged to allow easier production of maple syrup
1837-1917
Milk cows provided milk for our farm cheese factory and shipping to Boston markets via train and later by truck. The cheese factory closed in 1917.

Maple trees were planted 4 feet apart along the farm roadsides in 1950.
1917-1969
Milk production continued along with maple syrup. The farm house takes-in summer boarders.
