About Post Farm

The Post Marsh Farm is a quiet outdoor area at the end of Willow Creek Road that provides visitors with a beautiful landscape, intriguing wildlife, and a window into the wilderness of Western Massachusetts. Spanning 225 acres of land, the marsh is a prime location for birding, as its multiple trails course through different ecosystems around the wetland and surrounding forest. A causeway path crosses Willow Creek, allowing visitors to see the marsh up close. Year-round, quiet, and keen-eyed visitors can spot countless bird species on easy, relatively flat walking trails. Post Farm is along the migration routes of many bird species in the spring and summer, commonly including warblers, various waterfowl, and rusty blackbirds. Lucky birders can spot wrens, sora, bitterns, and Virginia rails, which occasionally breed here in the late spring. Winter brings about different species--barred owls and saw-whet owls often call this place home. Many other types of animals, such as white-tailed deer, foxes, and rabbits, can also be spotted rustling through the underbrush. This diverse array of wildlife, unique wetland vegetation, easy walking trails, and free entry make the Post Farm Marsh an ideal location for a family-friendly outdoor adventure in the beautiful Berkshires.
