We are a multi-generational enterprise on land in Rowley, MA that has been in our family since 1826. Our antique tractors and equipment were taken out of retirement in 2008, and we now sell crops and eggs through CSA and at local farmers markets. Although not certified organic, we are committed to natural practices on our farm. Along with all the tried and true vegetables, each year we add new varieties of exotic, unusual and heirloom varieties to please the gourmet palates of our sophisticated customers. Our mission is to provide the community with quality produce and other farm products that are delicious and safe to eat; to restore our familys farming heritage while providing a fair income through responsible stewardship of the land that will maintain a healthy environment for future generations; and to build community and promote a stimulating, educational environment so that future generations can experience farming as a viable, ethical, and productive way of life.
