Ferolbink Farms

Flag as Inappropriate

Ferolbink Farms is probably best known for its Irish potatoes, but also grows strawberries, corn, pumpkins, winter squash and silage corn as well. Founded in 1870, Ferolbink Farms is a 275-acre farm run by Jason M. Peckham. Ferolbink is not only the largest farm in the state, but it is one of Rhode Island's most productive farms for food, with fields in both Tiverton and Little Compton. On a clear day, from the farm, visitors can see all the way down to the Sakonnet River. The late fall is a busy time at Ferolbink. That is when the butternut squash and potato-growing operation is in full swing, which means harvesting half of the annual crop. That equates to more than 7 million pounds of potatoes. Ferolbink potatoes are used to make potato chips at the Frito-Lay factory in Vermont, while the rest are bound for Stop & Shop and local restaurants. The Peckham family has been in the area for five generations. Ferol and Bernard "Bink" Peckham (hence the name) bought the property in 1944, having moved from just two miles away. With a seasonal bed & breakfast on the property as well, this farm is busy year-round.
