The Watson Farm is an outstanding historic site in Jamestown, Rhode Island. It was established in 1789 by Job Watson and until today, the whole property is still owned by the family. For more than two centuries, the farm was cultivated by the same blood. Through the years, the Watsons have used and adopted new techniques in farming, helping the place thrive until the modern times.

Located in a scenic portion on the banks of the Narrangansett Bay, the Watson Farm is now run by Don and Heather Minto under the Historic New England. They still use the farmhouse that Job Watson built in 1796. They raise cattle that are used to produce beef, lamb, and wool. They also grow grass to supply winter hay, so the operation can be maintained all year round.
