Holly Hill Farm is situated on 140 acres of pristine conservation land. While this land has been protected from development by the White family, it is nonetheless in need of restoration due to the constant threat of invasive plant species that threaten the biodiversity of the land.
Our conservation volunteers work to remove invasive plants, restore native plants, and ensure that the land can support a healthy biodiversity of plants, insects, birds and other wildlife.
Teen volunteers can participate in this program in exchange for community service credits required by schools or other groups. We also have year-round opportunities for adult volunteers, either individually or in groups, such as company outings, church groups or clubs.

We recently re-introduced a 'native meadow' to better support pollinators such as native bumblebees as well as Monarchs and other butterflies.
Our conservation programs aid birds by increasing the health of the land upon which they rely. In 2020, we installed a kestrel nesting box near our newly restored native meadow.
Half of the species listed as endangered or threatened in Massachusetts are plants. We work to re-introduce healthy biodiversity, including native wildflowers and other plants.
