Clark’s Farm, Carlisle, MA

Blue skies are here again…at least temporarily. Following back to back storms it has been refreshing to look beyond at the vista, as it were, instead of the the snowplow in front of me or the car collision just to the right. Today was the first outright beautiful winter day, albeit, freezing cold.

Encouraged by the cloudless sky, I decided to trek out a bit and see how some local spots weathered it. Pictured today is one of Carlisle’s most recognizable spots, Clark’s Farm. Clark’s Farm sits prominently on Carlisle Road heading into town and is the symbol in many ways of Carlisle’s agrarian past and its commitment to hold on to open spaces for the future. The land extends over sixty acres and was turned into conservation land in 2003 by the Clark and Wilson families of Carlisle.
