Part of Quonquont’s charm comes from its variety of natural habitats. In addition to the apple and peach orchards, we maintain several acres of hay meadow in which we delay mowing to promote grassland-nesting birds like bobolinks and meadowlarks. There is a spring-fed farm pond, ringed by cattails and home to frogs, turtles, salamanders, dragonflies and fish. Quonquont Farm encompasses the Whately “Dingle” — a lovely valley of flowers and ferns intersected by a small brook. The farm’s hemlock and hickory woodlands extend back to Bull Mountain and the Conway State Forest.
