Summer is almost here, and we’re counting down to the start of the CSA. Only 2 weeks to go! The kale, chard, broccoli, and lettuce in the field are growing fast, and we’ll be eating them before we know it. We can’t believe how fast May is going by, and we are so excited about the start of the CSA! There’s still time to join, but shares are going fast (especially for the Davis pickup), so now is the time. Sign up this week and get a pack of gorgeous veggie notecards. This week’s card features cherry tomatoes, in honor of the sungolds we are planting this week. We’ll be offering packs of gorgeous veggie cards each week from now until the CSA starts.
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.
