Holmes Farm                                      Manomet, MA

We salute the Holmes family for working this soil for so long...it certainly has its challenges and reminds oh so often how close to the beach we are with its sandy composition and wind swept fields!  We grow and start lots of veggies, mostly the varieties we can't source from other places, like heirlooms. We grow as much as we can and are continuing to improve our ability to ask more of this land. We utilize the high tunnel, the greenhouse, and multiple field locations to supply the farm stand. We grow using organic practices but are not certified organic. The farm also has 70+ blueberry bushes and cranberry bogs. There are currently 5 bee hives on the land thanks to Jim Lifton and Danny Donovan, our local beekeepers. Our awesome customers just keep coming! SO your demand for amazing, fresh, seasonal, local food has become more than we are producing. To keep the farm stand well stocked we source from other awesome local farms. Here I have included some info about each but if you want to know more just ask us, we can tell you about their growing practices, what was sourced from each, etc....We know all our farmers! 

 

Langwater Farm                                                                                    N. Easton, MA

In the early 1900′s, Langwater Farm was famous for its Guernsey cows and Clydesdale horses. After that, the farm had been mowed for hay until the Ames family decided to seek out a farmer to begin a community farm for the town of Easton. Working with a non-profit organization, the Ames Realty Trust collected proposals from farmers and ultimately chose the O’Dwyer’s to farm the beautiful land at Langwater Farm. 2010 marked the first growing season at Langwater Farm, named as a nod to the rich history of the land.

Maple Meadow Farm & Apiary                                Manomet and Sherborn, MA

Great neighbor, CSA member and fabulous beekeeper...Jim Lifton, proprietor of Maple Meadow Farm and Apiary,  has a commitment to great honey. He has currently placed 5 hives on Holmes Farm and is working on increasing that number so we can have uber-local raw, unpasteurized honey. Honey is raw and unfiltered (but strained). We use minimal treatments on the bees (Formic and Oxalic acids for mites which are natural products). Our farm only uses organic treatments on our produce. We are surrounded by hay farms and an organic vegetable farm. We grow wildflowers,blueberries, blackberries, grapes, peaches, apples, tomatoes, kiwis, lavender, melons squash and more…Our bees get a diverse diet. The flavors reflect in the honey.
