know your farmer
Aside from growing it yourself, we can’t think of a better way to get the freshest, most seasonal and local ingredients than buying direct from the farm. A CSA membership means a stronger connection to the food you eat, it contributes to our local economy, and helps ensure Concord’s agricultural history continues for future generations.
From mid-June until November, Saltbox Farm CSA members receive a weekly share of the farm’s bounty. Everything we produce is grown using organic practices and without the use of synthetic pesticides or herbicides. We offer Full and Half shares, both of which are picked up each week.
Full shares are $800, and are enough for 3-4 people; Half shares are $500, and enough for 1-2 people. Until January 31st, you can either reserve your share with $100 deposit, with the balance due in March, or you may pay in full. After January 31st, full payment is due at the time of purchase.
Our program is Market-style, You-Choose, whereby members visit Saltbox Farm to choose their produce from the harvest, with specified amounts based on availability that week. The market-style method gives members greater flexibility in what they take home, allows the farmers to spend less time parceling out boxed shares, and creates an opportunity to experience time on the farm alongside the farmers and other CSA members.
Each season, we grow a diverse range of produce, from seasonal favorites to less common varietals. We believe that the best quality produce comes from the best quality soil, and for that we spend all season building up the structure and nutrients using techniques like cover cropping, crop rotation, and compost application. We hope to share this taste of our farm with you!
creating a community of cooks
Imagine being side-by-side in the kitchen with professional chefs discovering new dishes and learning first-hand new techniques and refining your cooking skills, all in a quintessential New England farm setting. Led by Chef Aaron Furmanek, our classes offer a truly unique experience of intimate hands-on instruction taught in an old world cottage with a fully outfitted kitchen, featuring an 8-burner professional range and an array of specialty cooking equipment. During the growing season, guests collect fresh ingredients from the herb and vegetable garden just steps from the teaching kitchen. Once the meal has been prepared, you will enjoy your handiwork in our rustic dining room.
Classes are limited to 10 people, and generally fill up quickly. If a class is sold out, please give us a call and we can put you on our waitlist. To get the latest news about class schedules, please join our mailing list.

private Events at saltbox farm
Saltbox Farm can be rented for a variety of private events, including weddings, farm dinners, cocktail parties, or anything else you can dream of.
At the farm, we can host up to 14 guests for a private cooking class in our intimate, rustic farmhouse that's home to The Cooking School at Saltbox Farm. Private cooking classes are perfect for small gatherings such as birthdays, bachelorette parties, or corporate team-building events.
For larger groups, we can accommodate a variety of events outside in the fields of our working farm, a singular experience in a one-of-a-kind setting. Imagine long family-style tables set up between the rows of grapes, or in the shadows of the hop yard. Table settings could include just-picked flowers alongside dishes that include food grown right at the farm paired with beer made from Saltbox Farm hops.
With more than 5 years experience with private event catering and planning, our award-winning catering team will assist you with every detail, from menu selection and wine pairings to rentals and even on-site event coordination services the day of your event.
