The farm is on 64 acres in Winchendon, MA that provides locally grown, organic vegetables to several restaurants. Along with supplying restaurants with fresh produce, eggs and sometimes meat, the farm is also involved in local farmer’s markets.
The farm has undergone some renovations in recent years such as updating work facilities, new roofing on the barn, adding solar powered hot water and electricity, new irrigation systems and they added nine new greenhouses! The green houses are helpful in prolonging the growing season. The farm has several cultivated fields, livestock, apple orchard and a large forest that supplies firewood to two restaurants. The livestock are a big part of our farm and include, pigs, chickens, goats, rabbits, pheasants, hens and horses.
The farm has a great relationship with the restaurants and they work together by having the farm supply the restaurants twice a week with fresh vegetables and the restaurants supply the farm with food scraps for the livestock, used vegetable friolater oil that fuels the farm’s vehicles and discarded oyster shells for the pathways around the farm. This is a great way to reuse and recycle our renewable resources!
