Independent farmers have carefully tended a tract of property located in the “Blue Hill Land” of Milton for hundreds of years. The Thayer family took up farming on Hillside Street, named for being literally on the ‘side’ of Blue Hill in the 1700’s. The Thayer’s farmed the land for generations. Including Henry, who in 1879, returned to Milton to continue his family legacy by engaging in floriculture where he successfully raised flowers for the Boston flower market.
The farm stayed in the Thayer family until Robert Oldfield bought the property in 1963. Bob had a lifelong dream of returning to his hometown to raise a family and farm the Thayer property. He worked day and night to grow both. Now fifty years later, two of Bob’s five children are continuing in his tractor tracks. Josh Oldfield and Maggie Oldfield aspire to provide garden enthusiasts with well grown, interesting plant material in a natural setting.
