Casey Farm at Saunderstown, Washington County, Rhode Island is a mid 18th century farmhouse originally owned and operated by the Casey family from 1702-1955. The farm is a 300-acre stretch from the Narragansett Bay to the Pettaquamscutt River. It flourished during the 18th century because of their access to goods coming from England. But this ended when Newport was burned down through the Revolution. The Casey family then decided to lease the farmhouse to tenant farmers. They kept 2 rooms which they use during summer vacations. The last Casey to own the farm was Edward Pearce Casey who died in 1940. Ever since, the farm has been managed and operated by the Historic New England Association. They grow organic vegetables, flowers, herbs and other produce. They are open to visitors every Saturday from June 1 to October 15 at 9am until 2pm.
