The Natick Community Organic Farm

An award-winning nonprofit, certified-organic farm providing
productive open space, farm products, and hands-on education for all ages, year-round since 1975.

Come visit the animals, buy some food, take a class, and lend a hand
We’re here to help YOU grow.

What’s New at NCOF:

For 45 years, Natick Community Organic Farm has prided itself on being open every day during daylight hours with no admission fee for your visits and purchases. Our grounds remain open for visits.  We hope to keep them that way, but we’ve had a record number of spring visitors, and must ask for your cooperation enforcing social distancing and safety.

GIVE STAFF AND EACH OTHER SPACE

Spring is an extremely busy time of year, and we have a small crew caring for all our plants, animals, and structures. Please give crew members enough room to safely do their work and understand if they do not have time to stop and chat, or ask you to step back.

Social distancing is the only way to flatten the curve. Keep six feet away from all staff and visitors. Do not touch tools, equipment, machines, animals, or gates. Wipe down anything your child(ren) accidentally touch.

RESPECT THE RULES

No running, shouting, or entering the animal enclosures or the greenhouses.  Respect our tenants’ privacy. The picnic tables and buildings are now closed, though our composting toilet is open and our barn-side sink is on. Bring your own hand sanitizer if you want it. All large group gatherings are postponed. If you have questions about a program that you signed up for,  reach out to [email protected].

The outdoor barn-side stand is open for purchases. What we have for sale is out. Eggs are in limited supply until we get more hens. Please buy meat and pre-order garden seedlings from our online store.

Thanks for checking in. We hope that you’re taking care of yourself, being kind to one another, and looking out for your neighbors. We’ll do our best to keep on farming!

Sincerely,

Your Friends at Natick Community Organic Farm
