"One of the oldest farms on Cape Cod, the land was granted to John Weeks in 1679 and was farmed by the Weeks family for almost 300 years. They raised cattle and sheep and maintained orchards and cropland. Wool was the primary source of income for most of the farm’s history, so when demand for wool declined in the late 1800s and early 1900s, family members turned to other occupations. The farmhouse was finally abandoned and torn down. The foundation to the barn still exists beside the path to Miles Pond.

"In 1949, the farm was sold to Captain John Peterson, who grew vegetables and fruit on the land for his Cape Codder Hotel.

"Today, the town uses the sheep not for their wool but for the practical purpose of keeping the grass and invasive plants 'mowed' so that the fields remain open. The sheep belong to Susan Schoen, a veterinarian who raises sheep and trains border collies as a hobby." -- www.300committee.org/petersonfarm.htm Will open in a new tab or window
