LexFarm was founded by residents of Lexington and Arlington. The founders and current LexFarm leadership are committed to the preservation of farming in our community as an integral part of our health, heritage and ongoing civic life. Education outreach (off farm) includes collaborations with public and private schools, civic and service organizations, and social service agencies.
On the Farm
Farm-based programs at LexFarm are as diverse as the communities we serve. Our intent is to foster connectedness to the farmland, farmers, history and each other, through a deeper understanding of the food system. Programs on the farm provide hands-on instruction on such topics as building healthy soil, promoting animal habitat, four-season composting, home gardening, and sustainable food production.
