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.
Fall CSA Shares Available!
Fall CSA Vegetable shares, as well as fall fruit shares, available! This share features a mix of cool season crops including winter squash, carrots, beets, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, kale, collards, salad mix and lettuce. This share also contains some storage crops such as onions and potatoes. Many vegetables including carrots and other roots, as well as brassicas (broccoli, cabbage, kale) are sweeter in the fall after experiencing a frost. The Fall CSA shares starts the week of 9/27 and continues until November 21st. Pick-up options are Tuesdays (2-6:30), Thursdays (2-6:30), or Saturdays (9am-1pm). The cost of the Fall Share is $220. To register, visit our online store.
Fall Fruit Shares also available! The fall fruit share is all about apples! The share dates and pick-up times are the same as the fall CSA. The share will contain mostly apples, with local pears when available and cranberries close to Thanksgiving. You receive about 4 pounds of fruit per week. You do not need to have a veggie share to have a fruit share. The fruit will be sourced from local farms and we will share information with you about the farmers who grow the fruit and their growing practices. The growers we source fruit from are usually not organic, but they do IPM (Integrated Pest Management), which means that they spray pesticides at a lower rate than conventional growers and only when they need to.The cost is $85 for 8 weeks. To register, visit our online store.
Egg Shares! We have partnered with Pete and Jen’s Backyard Birds to offer you a fall egg share. Pete and Jen’s Backyard birds are free range, pastured happy chickens fed an organic diet. You can choose a full share (1 dozen eggs per week) for $60 or half share (1/2 dozen eggs per week) for $30. To register, visit our online store.
Please note that you do need to purchase a membership with your shares.
