Drumlin Farm's Legacy

Drumlin Farm has been a strong presence in the community since 1955, thanks in large part to the ingenuity and foresight of Louise Ayer Hatheway (1876-1955), who bequeathed Drumlin Farm to Mass Audubon.

Louise Hatheway invited urban children to visit the farm and learn where their food came from. For almost 60 years, her legacy has inspired Drumlin Farm’s mission of educating families and children about the importance of community farming and environmental protection. 

We keep Louise Hatheway’s vision alive by helping people learn about the thread that ties people, nature, and agriculture together.
