Peardon Farm Preserve, Bridgewater

Preserve Acres: 21

The Peardon Farm Preserve is a scenic mixed farm, forest, and stream ecosystem just west of the Bridgewater center. The parcel includes seventeen acres of well-managed fields in four discrete compartments separated by historic stone walls, a fifteen-acre hemlock-hardwood ravine and perennial stream dominating in the north, and a younger deciduous forest in the eastern reach. The stream is fine brook trout habitat in a spectacular setting. NCLC has been a management and restoration partner on the farm since 2005 with much of our work targeted at hedgerow restoration and the removal and suppression of non-native invasive species. As with all of our farm properties, we manage for multiple uses that include support for traditional agricultural practices as well as wildlife.
