The Neighborhood Farm is a collection of market gardens in and around Needham, MA. We started growing in 2008, planting gardens in private yards and selling the vegetables, herbs and flowers we grew. The first year our gardens totalled less than 1/4 acre and we attended 1 local farmers' market. Since then, we've grown a lot. We still have 6 gardens in local yards, and now we also have a giant garden on a site we lease from The Trustees of Reservations. We sell our produce at farmers' markets, through our farmers' market CSA and to local restaurants. For more information visit About The Farm. We were recently featured as a Farmer Hero by Farm Aid. You can read the article here.
Our farmers' markets run from June through the end of October. This year we will be returning to the Dedham Square Farmers' Market on Wednesdays from 12-6 pm, the Roslindale Farmers' Market on Saturdays from 9-1:30, and the Needham Farmers' Market on Sundays from 1-5 pm.
We send out informational newsletters every few weeks. 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.

Sprout Lenders makes small loans to local food based business and their loan to us, in conjunction with a matching grant from the State Department of Agriculture, will help us to buy a small truck to get our produce to market in a more efficient, environmentally friendly manner. Thanks to both!
