Providing productive open space, farm products, and hands-on education year round.
The farm offers unique work experiences for teens. The summer teen work crew, the year-long apprenticeship in agriculture, and the summer leader in training programs teach teens how to work the farm, learn new skills, problem-solve, and become leaders. Founded in 1974, The Natick Community Organic Farm is a nonprofit, certified-organic farm providing productive open space, farm products, and hands-on education for all ages, year-round. Committed to farming methods that are ecologically healthy and sustainable, the Farm places special emphasis on service to youth through year-round classes, work-experience programs and volunteer opportunities for working the land. With your help, we can continue our work of fostering community goodwill through the love of the land.
