Preserving the Past for the Future
Borders Farm was settled by the Phillips Family in the 1760’s and then purchased by the Borders family almost 100 years ago. The farm, which is on the National Historic Register, encompasses over two hundred acres on both sides of North Road in Foster. Today, Borders Farm Preservation, Inc. and Borders Farm, Inc. keep alive Charles and Margery Borders’ dream to preserve their property as a working farm, museum and agricultural education center for the public. For more information, visit the Borders Farm website at www.bordersfarm.org.
Borders Farm is located at 31 North Rd, Foster, RI.
