The story of our farm begins nearly 300 years ago, in 1718. Warner Farm is one of the oldest and longest running family farms in New England. Since that time, ten generations of Warners have farmed in Sunderland.
The Warner’s, originally from England, migrated to America in the 1620s and settled in Sunderland (then called Swampfield) in the late 1710s.

Now, Mike Wissemann and his son, David continue that tradition by growing a wide range of crops, while following strict guidelines to maintain the land. The farm now consists of 150 acres of fertile river valley soil. This allows the Warner Farm family to offer CSA shares, wholesale and fresh retail produce throughout Massachusetts.
As a 10th generation family farm, we understand the importance of growing practices that nourish the soil and that promote the health and biodiversity of the land we farm. We have been feeding our community the freshest, healthiest, and purest produce for over 250 years.
We believe in preserving that legacy for future generations. Seventy acres of the farm are preserved through the Massachusetts Agricutural Preservation Restriction Program.
