Description
Thimble Farm was long a fixture on the island, known for its innovative hydroponic greenhouses. The land surrounding the greenhouses is flat and well-suited to farming. The land bank purchased the land’s development rights, plus a circumferential trail leading past Little Duarte’s Pond, which is a designated “special place” under the Martha’s Vineyard Commission law.

Uses
Nature study, hiking, mountain-biking, horseback-riding, dog-walking (town bylaw requires leashing), farming.

Access
Park in the trailhead at the Wapatequa Woods Reservation (property no. 16) and follow signs to designated trails.
