Be a part of our goal of 25 new members in the month of March–and get a gift certificate to some of our favorite local businesses. Click here to read all the CSA details, and sign up easily using our online form.
March is the month when the farm truly wakes up. We start working full time–seeding in the greenhouse, cleaning out the barn, repairing tools and equipment. It’s also the month when we make a lot of big purchases: fertilizer, potting soil, new row cover and other tools, cover crop seed, and most importantly–we start paying our employees for their labor.
March is the time to sign up for your CSA share. We rely on the financial support of CSA members now, in the spring, before we harvest our first crops, in order to make the farm run.
So, if you’re thinking about signing up for a share, now is the time! We have a goal of signing up 25 new members in the month of March. If you’re one of the first 25, we’re giving out $10 gift certificates to two great local businesses: Haute Coffee in Concord and Dave’s Fresh Pasta in Somerville. It’s our way of saying thank you for showing your commitment to First Root. Just enter the appropriate code in the box on the sign up form: HAUTE or DAVES. We’ll mail you your gift certificate in the first week of April.
We hope to see you on the farm this summer!
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 enthusiastic, dedicated young farmers, 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 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.
