Summer is here, and the start of the CSA is just around the corner. Only 1 week to go! We just took the row cover off our field of spring greens, and they are all huge, gorgeous, and ready for eating! We can’t wait to share all of the vegetable bounty with this year’s CSA members. There are still a few spots open for both Concord pickups. This week is your last chance to get a pack of veggie notecards when you sign up. This week’s card features garlic, in honor of our beautiful garlic crop, which is just starting to bulb up in the field.

First Root is a little vegetable farm with a big heart. We are young farmers who grow food with love. We love to eat, we love to cook, we love working outside, and we love getting to share it all with so many wonderful folks.
Founded in 2009 by two dedicated farmers with no money and a lot of enthusiasm, First Root has grown into a thriving CSA. We farm on 2.5 acres of historic farmland in Minute Man National Historical Park in Concord, MA. We use organic and sustainable growing practices because we want this land to be fertile and healthy for many years to come. We are proud to provide high-quality produce to folks in the Boston area, and every day, we feel lucky that we are surrounded by so many people who are as head-over-heels excited abut local food as we are!
As a successful start-up farm, we hope to inspire other farmers (young and old) to take the plunge and make their own farm dreams come true.
