Located in Concord, MA, Saltbox Farm is a working 10-acre family farm that reminds us of our connections to the land. It’s a place to learn respect for what we grow and for the changing seasons. It is a source of inspiration not only for what we cook and eat, but also for how we live. We are lucky to have Mark Congdon as our Farm Manager and a passionate team of farmers who take care of this special place all year long.
At Saltbox Farm, we use only organic and sustainable farming practices with no synthetic herbicides or pesticides. We believe that the best quality produce comes from the best quality soil. Through crop rotations, cover crops and diverse compost applications, we can build healthy and fertile soil to produce the most nutrient rich and delicious vegetables possible.
From our farm to your table
We supply a wide variety of fresh, local ingredients to roughly 115 families through our annual CSA program and sell more than 250 pounds each year at our seasonal farmstand. Our own produce, eggs, lamb and honey are also featured in our menus at Saltbox Kitchen, our café & brewery located in the heart of West Concord and on menus for our Saltbox Catering clients.
As farmers, we have a unique opportunity to strengthen our community through the work that we do and the food that we grow. In 2017, we initiated an internship program working with local high school students to teach them about farming and help ensure that Concord’s storied agricultural history continues with future generations. We also support more than 25 area families through our regular donations to local food pantries.
