Beautiful views, vintage character, intriguing history, and a reminder of a simpler time. Thern Farm has a deep history going back to 1891 when the farmhouse that stands today was built as a dining hall for the New London Fair (1891-1912). In its heyday, thousands of visitors walked, came by horse and buggy, or rode the train to come to the fair. After the fair ended the land was purchased by the Thern family in 1914 and turned into a small dairy farm. In 2014, Thern Farm was recognized with the Century Farm Award for over 100 years of family ownership of the land. In 2015, Thern Farm became part of the New London Heritage Historical Society ensuring that its historical legacy will live on.
Thern Farm invites you to visit the restored farmhouse for a glimpse into the past. The farmhouse has been fully renovated with modern conveniences while capturing the vintage vibe you would expect from a farmhouse built in 1891. We offer many programs throughout the year and are available for tours and private events.
