Norwell Farms is a 501c(3) non-profit community farm in Norwell, MA, a small town located about 25 miles south of Boston. We have a license from the Town of Norwell to farm on 7 acres at the Historic Jacobs Farm, and we are in our 8th year of operation. The nonprofit organization of Norwell Farms runs community events and educational programs at the farm and supports local organizations and food pantries to address food insecurity.
Norwell Farms is seeking an experienced, organic vegetable farmer who shares our vision to build a small-scale, organic, market garden at Jacobs Farm. In this model, the farmer might grow only higher value crops for two or three markets (e.g. CSA, Farm Stand, Wholesale), with the goal of obtaining higher yields per acre through building soils with compost and other amendments, reducing tillage, maximizing plantings per bed, and controlling weeds. The vegetable farmer will have the advantage of starting with an established farm operation and “Norwell Farms” brand, which has become a household name in our surrounding South Shore community. Norwell Farms currently serves 100+/- member vegetable CSA, a farm stand, and wholesale accounts.
