Warner Farm is one of the oldest and longest running family farms in New England. Ten generations of Warners have farmed in Sunderland since the 1720's. Father and son Mike and David Wissemann continue that legacy by growing a wide range of crops on 150 acres of fertile river valley soil, offering CSA shares and wholesale produce throughout Massachusetts. The produce is also sold at local stores, farmer's markets, and their own farmstand. Warner Farm is the home of Mike’s Maze, an eight-acre corn maze that attracts over 8000 visitors to the farm each year. The Maze is open weekends and holidays September through the end of October.
