Would you like to know where your food comes from? Do you wish you could grow your own food? Do you want to support local agriculture? Would you like to know that your food is grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides? Then Stearns Farm CSA is the place for you. Established in 1990 by Penelope Turton, Stearns Farm is one of the oldest CSAs in the country. The bulk of our crops are vegetables, but we also grow berries, culinary herbs, and flowers.
Stearns Farm is one of the rare CSAs that allows sharers to participate in the fieldwork, giving them a hands-on opportunity to learn about raising the food they eat.
We offer a twenty week summer share that runs from June through October, a back-to-school share that starts in late August and runs through October and a winter share of varying length. During the pickup season you will come to the farm once a week (summer) or once a month (winter) to choose your share of the harvest and pick some of the crops yourself.
Stearns Farm is more than just a place to get fresh vegetables: it is a community. Our sharers work in the field, volunteer in all areas of the farm, and participate in spring and fall harvest celebrations. We even have a Children’s Garden for our younger sharers to play in while their parents collect the share or work in the fields.
