  • Fresh Food, Future Farmers

    Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and other farm product sales are central to our nationally recognized training program for new farmers – Learn To Farm at The Farm School. Product sales not only offset the costs of providing the training and programming, but the production itself is essential to our curriculum.

    We teach our students the best growing, harvesting and packaging practices needed to deliver the freshest and most delicious food possible to our CSA members. By joining our CSA, you support their learning and ultimately help grow more successful small farms.

    Our 2017 Summer Farm Shares are sold out for the season. Join our email list and we’ll notify you when  registration opens for next year’s shares.

    Visit us on Thursdays at the Watertown Farmer’s Market, where we’ll be selling exquisitely fresh salad greens and farm fresh eggs from 2-6pm.

    Check out our Meat Offerings and place an order for our pasture-raised pork, lamb and beef.

    Get yourself a Farm School bag, hat or T-shirt on our Merchandise Page.

    Also, support our student-farmer and staff alumni in their new endeavors!

    Join the Farm School community, where we connect people to farming!

    Participation in our CSA is essential to the agricultural education of our adult student farmers.  It also links our members intimately to the land and community that grows their food.

    Members enjoy 21 weeks of Certified Organic vegetables and fruit delivered weekly from mid-June – October. Check out what we’re growing this season for our CSA members!

    Pickups available in Cambridge (Iggy’s Bread of the World), Watertown (The Arsenal on the Charles) and Orange (Maggie’s Farm).

    Several share options are available:

    • Boxed shares allow you to pick up a box of pre-selected vegetables at your convenience and are sized to provide a week’s worth of vegetables for a family.
    • Market-style shares allow you to select your vegetables from a farmer’s market-style stand and are available in two sizes. Full shares are great for families, small shares are perfect for couples.

    About our animals

    Our beef is grass fed and finished Red Devon. In summer, our herd is rotationally grazed on our pastures. In the winter the cows eat haylage (pickled hay) from neighborhood fields

    Our pigs are pastured in our forests and fed non-GMO/pesticide free grain and food scraps from our organic veggie fields.

    Our lamb is grass fed and finished. Our sheep flock is rotationally grazed on our pastures in summer and receives supplemental alfalfa feed and local hay in the winter.

    Our eggs are non-GMO and free range. Our laying hens nest in a mobile coop on wheels that moves amongst our pastures, where our chickens range freely. In addition to grass, food scraps, and insects, our hens enjoy GMO-free grain and scratch.

    Radical Radish

    The Radical Radish: ‘The words radical and radish share a common etymological origin. Radishes are often vibrant in color, flavorful (to the point of tears in some Japanese varieties) and, most of all, a tuber, root-based crop. The Latin radix means root. To be radical, one is getting to the root of that in which they are engaging.’
