What Our Members Say...


Coming to the farm is one of the highlights of my week. It's a little piece of heaven in the mist of all the hub-bub surrounding us everyday. And, I love eating such healthful food.

We love it all. Love that it is so family friendly, staff and owners are amazing people, everyone is helpful. Love the sense of community

It changed our eating habits. Since we became members we know more about vegetables and have researched more recipes and even pickling and canning and fermenting. We are always learning at the farm and we bring that experience home

CSA


CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and we think of it as just that: a partnership between our farm and our members. Each year, our members purchase a share of the upcoming harvest, which they pick up from the farm each week.


We harvest our vegetables when they’re perfectly ripe, so members can take them home and eat them! We also plant small fruits – blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and table grapes – and culinary herbs and flowers, for members to pick when they come to get their weekly share.


And the best news is, our CSA is more than just weekly produce!


Community

Our farm is a peaceful spot where members can meet neighbors and make friends. We love to cook, and share this passion in the form of our wood-fired oven, where members can come to bake bread and make pizza on warm summer evenings. We even host family cooking workshops so children can teach their parents how to cook! We encourage families to pick fresh flowers and culinary herbs in our gardens, and to celebrate the harvest at our annual square dance.


Health

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” - Michael Pollan

At Charlestown Farm, we eat a lot of plants. Why? They taste incredible! Each year, we review the past year’s tasting notes and pour over seed catalogues from Johnny’s, FedCo and Seedway to pick the best-tasting varieties. Months later, when the plants have grown up in the hot summer sun, we harvest their produce at peak ripeness. It’s no wonder our plates are filled with vegetables when they are this juicy and flavorful.


Families and Fun

Walk into our shareroom, and it’s likely you’ll see at least one toddler counting the week’s share of summer squash. Or learning that a carrot grows in the ground. Children love the farm, and love to pick flowers, fruits and even vegetables. Most importantly, they like to eat the food that they pick. And with a sandbox, a swing and a chicken tractor full of happy hens, the farm becomes a playground.
