In 2008, we started planting gardens in private yards and selling the vegetables, herbs and flowers we grew. The first year our gardens totaled less than 1/4 acre and we attended 1 local farmers' market. Over the years we worked on rented and borrowed land, and in yards, barns, garages, and greenhouses, spread over 20 miles of Eastern Massachusetts.
Beginning in 2017, we are moving our entire operation to a single site. After several seasons of farm hunting, we have finally found a long term home for our farm, and it will allow us to grow in all kinds of new ways! We are pleased to announce that we are leasing a portion of historic Mainstone Farm in Wayland, MA.
We will have a farm stand with our own vegetables, flowers, herbs, and seedlings, Mainstone's pasture raised beef, and some other great offerings from our neighboring farms. Over the coming seasons, we will be building our very own greenhouses and high tunnels to start our seedlings on site and to grow vegetables right through the winter. We'll be planting crops for future Pick Your Own offerings. We'll be able to put in demonstration gardens and ultimately host classes, workshops and farm visits so we can continue our mission of supporting people as they grow their own food. And, we'll be doing it all on one of the most beautiful farms in Massachusetts.
We sell our produce at farmers' markets, through our farmers' market CSA and to local restaurants. Beginning in 2017 we will also sell via the Farm Stand at Mainstone Farm.
We send out newsletters every few months. Our newsletters have gardening advice, stories from our farm, and occasionally, opportunities to pre-order produce via email. Please subscribe to our newsletter by emailing us.
