The Cook–Bateman Farm is a colonial farm at the corner of Fogland and Puncatest Neck Roads in Tiverton, Rhode Island. The oldest portion of the main farmhouse dates to c. 1730-48, was enlarged in c. 1812-20, and altered to give it then-fashionable Second Empire styling c. 1870. The farmhouse stands on 63 acres (25 ha) of rolling farmland, and is accompanied by a gambrel-roofed barn (late 19th or early 20th century) and a number of other smaller outbuildings. The property, which has evidence of Native American occupation, was developed by John Cook in the 18th century, and remained in the hands of just two families for more than 200 years.[2]

The farm was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
