Welcome to our Farm
The Brookwood Community Farm is a working farm and education center located in Milton and Canton, MA. The farm is dedicated to preserving historic farmland through sustainable agricultural production that improves access to healthy, affordable, freshly grown fruits and vegetables in urban communities. The farm operates a community supported agriculture program, sells produce at local farmers markets and provides on-farm employment, educational and volunteer opportunities to members of the surrounding communities. Although Brookwood Community Farm is not organic certified, we follow the Northeast Organic Farmer’s Association organic pledge, which outlines the environmentally and socially sustainable practices we follow.
Don’t miss Brookwood’s Third Annual Farm-to-Table dinner, honoring Judy Lieberman (Co-Founder of Brookwood Community Farm) and celebrating 10 years of growing! All proceeds from this dinner go directly to support our food justice programs.
The dinner will take place Sunday, September 20th, 4:00-7:00pm at the Bradley Estate, just down the road in Canton. This not-to-be-missed event will feature a farm-to-table dinner featuring all locally sourced food prepared by Joan MacIsaac of Effie’s Homemade, local celebrity chef Didi Emmons and Simca Horwitz of Bushel & Crumb; an open bar of craft beer and wine; and live music. We’ll have a silent auction and other opportunities for you to have fun while supporting Brookwood.
Tickets are $100 and may be purchased by clicking on this link. $55 of your ticket price is tax deductible! Tickets sold out quickly last year, so buy your tickets now if you want to attend!
To honor Judy’s commitment to our food justice programs, we’re renaming our CSA fund The Judy Lieberman Community Fund. All donations to this fund will help our neighbors who otherwise wouldn’t be able to participate in the farm, to do so. Your contribution to this fund is 100% tax deductible. Please visit our online store to donate!
Brookwood is much more than just a local organic farm growing good food for its members. Since our founding in 2006, we have worked hard to ensure that the food grown at Brookwood gets to areas where fresh food is hard to find and often too expensive for low-income residents. To do this, we have partnered with a number of food pantries, shelters and neighborhood organizations throughout the metro-Boston area to bring fresh food where it is needed most.In 2014, Brookwood donated over $32,000 in produce to our neighbors. Our deliveries included the Germantown Neighborhood Pantry in Quincy; Rosie’s Place in Boston; the Haitian America Public Health Initiative pantry in Mattapan; the Milton Food Pantry;and the Canton Food Pantry; as well as a number of other local programs and events
Want to help make the event a success? Donate an auction item (contact Susan at susan@brookwoodcommunityfarm) or Sponsor the Farm Dinner!
We hope you will join us on September 20th to celebrate the harvest’s bounty with good friends and share our commitment to good food for all!
Foraging with David Craft!
Join David Craft, an active forager and author of Urban Foraging, for a walk around Brookwood Farm foraging for local food on September 10th from 5:30-7:00pm. Participants will learn some basic foraging skills, and tips for identifying local edibles that most people overlook. Come to learn about true local, wild food sources in your community! Participants will meet David at the pink tent at Brookwood Community Farm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at our online store.
David Craft studied mechanical engineering as an undergraduate and received his Ph.D. in operations research. Neither of these topics have anything to do with plants, but Craft is an avid forager and has led numerous walking tours over the past few years in the Greater Boston area. He has also appeared in the Boston Globe and on On-Point for his foraging. His book, Urban Foraging, available on Amazon, and during the class, was a monthly pick at the Harvard Bookstore upon its publication.
