  • See how a traditional kitchen turned into a successful home business that offers cooking classes, group dinners and private events in a new, state of the art commercial kitchen – and enjoy a tasty crepe while you’re there!
  • Take a trip back in time to a 1700’s working farmstead.  Every building on this bucolic property has been restored to its original condition: from the great barn, to the functional carriage house, to the period farm house fully equipped with a vintage wood-burning cook stove that actually works.
  • See beautiful landscape features that bring character and personality to a home including: pools, ponds, fields and garden art.
  • Gather ideas for new kitchen layouts, great room interiors and how to blend modern amenities and state of the art function with rural charm
  • Marvel at the many ways to use a barn: they’re not just for storing hay anymore.
  • Don’t miss the themed raffles that make for inspired and beautiful gift ideas for mom, or the coffee bar at one of the stops along the way!

All proceeds from the Boxford Homes Tour benefit the Boxford Elementary Schools Trust (BEST), an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to fostering excellence in our public schools by raising private funds to supplement longer-term elementary school initiatives and innovative teaching tools, technology and teacher trainings.  If you are interested in volunteering your time, or partnering with BEST in some other way, please contact us at info@bestforboxford.org.
