"For four generations, Christmas trees perfumed the grounds at Leyden Farm & Winery. In 2010, the Leyden family became interested in making their own fruit-essence wines and planted strawberries, blueberries, and grapevines amidst the trees, becoming partners with a love for farming and wine. The fruit from the vines grew eventually becoming red wines such as their Romeo's Red and American Merlot, white wines such as Cleo's Blanc and Sunny's Grigio, or fruit varieties such as Apple Jack Russell, and Samson's Wild Berry."

"The original house was built by William Sprague in 1790 and remained the family homestead for four generations. At first, farming was their primary interest. However, in 1808 after machinery for spinning cotton was invented, the Sprague converted a small grist mill on the nearby Pocasset River into one of the first cotton mills in New England. This was the beginning of the “Sprague Empire” which later spread throughout the Pawtuxet River valley."
