The New Hampshire Farm Museum is a farm museum in Milton, New Hampshire, United States.

Three centuries of New Hampshire rural life are presented in the historic farmhouse. The museum includes a 104-foot-long (32 m) three-story great barn with collection of agricultural machinery, farm tools, sleighs and wagons. There are also live farm animals, a nature trail and a museum shop.

The museum is located on the former Plumer-Jones farmstead, a traditional series of connected buildings with farmhouse dating to the late 18th century and barns dating to the mid 19th century,[2] which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
