Got Truck?

got truck?Lexington Community Farm is seeking a donation of a pickup truck for farm use.

Do you know someone who might have one and donate to a good cause? Preferably the truck is 4 wheel-drive, but any “inspectable” truck would be useful.

Also, please see our growing wish list for other items that would be helpful as we gear up to open the farm stand and the first season of Lexington Community Farm on April 19!

Dan watches seeds drop into tray from seeding machine

Farm Manager Dan Roberts watches the first seeds of Lexington Community Farm drop into trays from the seeding machine.

It might be cold outside with snow on the ground, but farmers Dan and Erinn Roberts of Community Farms Outreach, are already in the greenhouse at Lexington Community Farm.  They’ve started sowing seeds for pansies and herbs – using a mechanical seeder – to be sold at the farm stand when it opens this spring.  They are also ordering seeds for flowers and bedding plants, finalizing the crop plan, and shopping for tractors to be ready for the inaugural growing season. (Please donate to our Build the Farm campaign to help support our tractor purchases! )

Beginning in late April, the farm stand at 52 Lowell Street will be open Wednesday through Sunday, offering vegetables, herbs, flowers, potted annuals, and bedding plants grown on the farm.   Other locally-produced products, such as honey, maple syrup, shrubs, eggs, beans, grains, jams, pickles, bread, meat, poultry, and cheese, will also be available.

In addition, the farm is selling 212 CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares.
