Brookwood Community Farm is a non-profit farming operation and education center in Canton, MA. Brookwood Community Farm (BCF) was founded in 2006 with the goals of restoring underutilized farmland near Boston, strengthening the local food system, and addressing the urgent need for access to healthy food in low-income neighborhoods of Boston. With the belief that one unified approach can help address the two problems of farmland loss and access to healthy foods, Brookwood returned to production a historic sheep farm just three miles from Boston. From one acre of land under cultivation in 2006, the farm has expanded to cultivate over eight acres using organic practices and operate a 300-person Community Supported Agriculture program. Brookwood also provides on-farm educational, volunteer and employment opportunities to area youth and adults, and distributes approximately 15% of our annual produce harvested to hunger relief and food justice programs. Brookwood just celebrated its 12th growing season, and we are looking for a rockstar farm manager to come take the farm to the next level.

Located in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, Brix Bounty Farm works as a community catalyst producing nutrient-rich vegetables, providing educational opportunities, and undertaking crop & soil research. This coming season we’ll actively crop ~7 acres of direct-marketed vegetables. Our production methods are grounded in realizing the wealth of productivity resulting from biologically managed soils, renewed with a broad spectrum of minerals. We market 95% of our vegetables on the farm through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program (~80 summertime shares, ~40 wintertime shares) and a self-serve farm stand (~$125K annual sales). The remaining vegetables are marketed at the downtown New Bedford Farmers Market located approximately 5 miles from the farm gate.
