Lexington Community Farm (LexFarm) is a non-profit certified organic farm at 52 Lowell Street in Lexington, MA, next to the Arlington Reservoir. We are committed to increasing access to organic produce for households of all income levels. LexFarm provides hands-on education to foster connections to farmland, farming, and each other, through workshops, education partners, our CSA, and volunteer programs.
LexFarm is currently in its eighth year of production on five acres. Produce is sold through a summer CSA, fall CSA, flower CSA, and farm stand. We aim to donate 10% of what we grow to food insecure community members through local food rescue organizations.
In 2021 farm production will focus on improving yields through better irrigation, increased efficiencies and improved soil health. In addition, LexFarm will be focusing on increasing our farmstand income, and growing fundraising. In 2021, the organization will also focus on additional ways to support food insecure community members such as offering subsidies for CSA shares. LexFarm intends to explore ways to support BIPOC area residents, such as selling food items from Black-owned businesses and encouraging community members with diverse backgrounds to run for Board positions.
