With its idyllic setting, the historic Keith Farm is rich in history of the New England story. The footprints we leave as stewards of the land weave the history of lives past with generations to come. The farm flourishes with hard work, fertile soil and is able to share its bountiful harvest.
Lyn was born and spent her early years in Ashburnham, MA. In 1969, Lyn and her family relocated to what would become The Keith Farm. Spending her formative years in this bucolic setting helped shape Lyn’s passion for organic agriculture, the environment, and historic preservation.
After college and a successful career in the corporate travel industry, Lyn felt the pull of the farm and returned home to Westport to begin a second career as an entrepreneur in the catering industry. Back on the farm, Lyn rekindled her love for gardening and developed a thriving tomato-growing operation. She embraced the flourishing farm-to-table movement, selling her tomatoes and other produce to local markets and restaurants in the Southcoast.
Lyn cares deeply about Westport and the surrounding Southcoast communities and is currently a member of the President’s Council at New Bedford’s Waterfront Historic Area League (WHALE) and a member of the Leadership Committee for the Westport Historical Society. She also serves on the Development & Outreach Committee for the Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust (DNRT).
