Twining Farm, also known as the David and Elizabeth Twining Farm, is a historic home and farm located at Newtown Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The stone farmhouse was built in two stages. They are a 2 12-story, stone eastern section, with a later three-bay, 2 12-story western addition built in 1832. A frame wing and bow window were added about 1940. Also on the property are a contributing stable, chicken house, and bank barn complex. The farm was featured in three of four Newtown farmscape paintings by noted artist Edward Hicks (1780-1849). Hicks had resided for 10 years at the farm as the foster son of Elizabeth and David Twining.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
