One of the hardest things about social distancing is being separated from people who love the Farm, like you. We miss you and we hope that you and your families are well and safe. During this challenging time, we are still doing what the Farm does best – growing seedlings, cultivating the land, and preparing for our summer harvest so that you can count on fresh, healthy, locally-grown food. We remain committed to produce donations to meet the needs of our Newton community, and hope that we are able to make this work financially in 2020.
Unfortunately we have also had to eliminate this year’s spring education programs, Dinner on the Farm and barn rental offerings. And we are working on how to adapt our summer camp. For the Farm to stay strong, we need your support.
You can count on the Farm!

With your support, the Farm has the strength to be resilient in this time of uncertainty. And when life goes back to normal, we will all be grateful for the healthy food, place to connect and learn, and the joy that grows here.
Now more than ever, our community needs the Farm.
And the Farm needs you.
With sincere gratitude for this community,
