Farming & CSA Programs
Join the local food movement and enjoy tasty, sustainably-grown produce by signing up for a CSA share or buying veggies grown at one of our sanctuaries. Mass Audubon also offer food-related programs where you can learn new techniques in the kitchen, meet your local farmers, get involved in the food system, and much more.
Healthy farming leads to healthy people and a healthy community. That's why Mass Audubon is committed to sustainable, organic farming practices that work with the seasons, not against them.
At Drumlin Farm in Lincoln, visitors can explore a wildlife sanctuary that's also a working, educational farm. The sanctuary raises livestock and poultry, grows crops, and produces hay for their animals—all within a 206-acre property. Drumlin provides year-round programs where visitors can meet the farm animals and explore the fields!
The 17-acre Farm at Moose Hill in Sharon is the result of a partnership between Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary and the local, family-run Ward's Berry Farm. The Farm offers certified organic vegetables to the surrounding communities through a CSA program and a Farm Stand. CSA shareholders have the chance to support the Farm in a hands-on way by helping with harvesting, weeding, and distribution.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Three of our wildlife sanctuaries offer CSAs from spring through fall. These programs give members a chance to have a deeper connection with their food and where it comes from while also enjoying fresh, organic vegetables and fruits.
