Read these wonder, short, sweet stories about our farms.
Long Life Farm
Here in Hopkinton, run by the ever-intrepid Laura Davis and Donald Sutherland. A CSA farm, lazy-shares available, no work required! Always organic, now certified to prove.
Produce runs the gamut, king-kale, radishes, beets, luscious heirloom tomatoes, "a lot of vegetables!" quote spokesdaughters Mei and Li, who "sort of work at the farm". And what makes the vegetables so special? As the girls endorse- "They taste good!"May they live long and prosper!
Little Beehive Farm
Little Beehive Farm, located at 35 Dalton Rd, Holliston is a labor of love at the "Om Sweet Om" of Tony and Dianne Lulek. Had its inception 9 years ago while driving through Westwood and spying hives by side of road, Tony asked about, researched, made a go of it with 9 hives, and it's been a buzzin' business ever since! Serendipitously, the surname Lulek means "Little Beehive". Guess it was just meant to "bee"!
A certified organic community farm on 17 fertile acres in Westboro, operated by John Mitchell for the past decade. Committed to community service, they donate large portions of their harvest to charity. With 200 members, weaving a beautiful vision.
The Pumpkin Farm
Based at 72 Milford St, Medway, with farm land in Millis. Jason and Nicole Lobisser are in their second year, offering a profuse array of chemical-free produce: lettuce, radishes, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, you name it, and last but not least, PUMPKINS! A well-rounded assortment! Organic Certification approved April 2015!
Kelly's Family Farm
Dick Kelly’s, to be precise, a local tradition for 77 years, at 146 Milford St. in Upton. Even the wooden display stands are original to yesteryear, just repainted, Kelly-green of course. A cornucopia of fruits and vegetables, using only low toxicity pest- management. The vibrant selection is “pretty good”, as understated by Alex Martin and Molly King, two happy employees. It wouldn’t be Upton without “Kelly’s”.
