About the Agriculture Team
Trustees Farms are places of belonging where visitors can learn about the land and the natural cycles we depend on, share experiences, and enjoy farm fresh products through our CSA, farm stores and Mobile Market. Our farms center the best practices in small-scale agriculture, drawing from the agrarian knowledge of the generations who’ve come before us with concern for the many who will come after. Our farm work is grounded in growing food for all, careful grass management, attentive soil building and humane animal husbandry.
We have over 1500 CSA members and retail farm stores at multiple locations. We are committed to growing our community by connecting people to food and the land on which it grows. Our farms are vibrant community gathering places hosting events, volunteer opportunities, school groups, camps and classes.
