The Davis Croft Farm, aka Faraway Farm, has a long history dating back to the 1700s. Neighboring the Preserve’s land, much of the farm’s rich history was unearthed for the first time while working to restore its 110-acres. Today the challenges of restoring and preserving this space —scenic roadway, preserved agricultural lands and protected ecosystems— from being lost to time and the invasive species that have run rampant are underway. Come and explore the journey of the past as we work to ensure its future.

Melissa Davis is a senior managing director at Accenture. With more than 25 years in the industry, she previously worked at PCC and GE Aviation across the supply chain and manufacturing functions, globally. Having gained a dual master’s at Tufts University in urban and environmental policy and hazardous materials engineering, Davis also brings deep expertise in both EH&S and sustainability. New Hope is the family’s 14th move and with it their largest restoration project to date.
