Sunny Meadow Farm was originally owned and farmed by Walter F. Lewis. After his death, the land on Robin Hill Rd was used for a horse farm, greenhouses and fields rented by Jones Farm.
In 2008, the Town of Chelmsford purchased the land from the family of Walter Lewis. The Chelmsford Land Conservation Trust holds a conservation restriction on the site
In the spring of 2009, the first section of garden, occupying the former fenced-in horse paddock, was opened. This gated area contains 41 plots averaging 15′ x 30′. Two more community gardens have followed and the farm now also contains 5 micro farmers and large wild areas for native plants and animals
