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.
Join our 2017 Summer Vegetable CSA Farm Share on or before January 15, 2017 and pay the 2016 price.
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.

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.

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.’
