South Road, East Greenwich


With its history dating back to the early 1700s, East Greenwich Land Trust’s Briggs Boesch Farm is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 144-acre farm extending for nearly a mile along the south side of South Road by 1716. Pat’s Pastured, the current caretaker of this historic property, offers high quality pasture-raised and grass-fed meats for sale.

And there are hiking trails!! We’ll meet up with one of the board members of the East Greenwich Land Trust and hike a bit over a mile through woods, fields, and farm areas. This is an easy hike for young children, especially with the pigs, chickens, ducks and other animals on the property that we’ll see.

We will meet in the parking lot at 2pm. Click here for directions to the farm. Be sure to turn off South Road at the white “Briggs Boesch Farm” sign, not into the Pat’s Pastured driveway.

  1. I have learned through research that my 8th Great Grandfather was John Briggs and the previous owner of the Briggs-Boesch Farm. I was wondering if there are any Briggs family members still living in the area? We look forward to visiting the old homestead during the summer of 2019.

    Warm regards,

    1. Hi Tom! I do not know the history of the Briggs family, but maybe Pat McNiff knows? He is the owner of Pat’s Pastured and currently living on and farming the property.

    2. Hi Tom,
      Curious, did you find out if there are any Briggs left in the area?
      I am researching the Briggs family also.
      John Briggs is my 8th grandfather as well.
      Thank You
