Phillips Farm is an historic and environmental treasure, located in Glocester, Rhode Island, and one of eight special sites preserved as open space by the Glocester Land Trust and RI Department of Environmental Management.  Phillips Farm encompasses diverse habitats on its approximately 68 compact acres, including open fields, trails, forest and wetlands. Most of the trees are second growth, but many have reached full maturity. There is also an extensive stand of American beech and the wetlands  support a diverse variety of ferns and flowering plants which keep blossoms from early Spring through the summer.   

     This site offers a lovely walk and the site is open from dawn to dusk daily. This site was purchased with the help of Miss Elizabeth M. Phillips, the citizens of Glocester and the RI DEM. It is a significant property along Putnam Pike in Harmony, Rhode Island.
