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.
Sign up for one of our 2017 Summer Farm Shares and enjoy our vegetables and meat all season long.
The Farmer’s Market season is done for the year, but you can look for us next June, Thursdays at the Watertown Farmer’s Market.
Check out our Meat Offerings for pasture-raised pork, lamb, beef and farm-fresh eggs.
Get yourself a Farm School bag, hat or T-shirt on our Merchandise Page.

Through our newsletters and social media, you will follow your farmers in their journey of learning and your veggies from seed to market.
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!

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.
Other ways to purchase our meat
Select cuts will become available for special order in late spring. To receive an email when meat is available for purchase, contact email@example.com.

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.’
