The Farnham Farm is historic farm on Prudence Island in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.

The farm was started by the Dennis family[who?] after the original farms on Prudence Island were burned and destroyed by the British during the American Revolution around the time of the Battle of Rhode Island. The farm contains several extant structures including a house (ca. 1805), barn (ca. 1850), milk house, fields, garden, woodland, orchard, and stone walls. The Dennis family sold the house to the Farnhams[who?] in 1867. The site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
