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.
