The Farm at Moose Hill
Healthy farming leads to healthy people and a healthy community. This is why Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary in Sharon has partnered with the local, family-run Ward’s Berry Farm to offer organic vegetables to our surrounding communities.
Saturdays & Sundays • 11:00 am-4:00 pm
Beginning in June, Moose Hill will open the Barn at 4 Moose Hill Street for a weekend Farm Stand! Each Saturday and Sunday, you will find just-harvested organic vegetables as well as Moose Hill’s maple syrup (bottled onsite during the sugaring season) and honey from our hives—while supplies last!
As summer progresses, we will have pick-your-own opportunities in our fields as well. Our farm apprentices and farm hands will be on hand to share information about the produce, the farm, and the sanctuary.
Pick-up in Sharon: Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 4:00-7:00 pm
Pick-up in Mattapan: Friday from 3:30-6:30 pm
Shareholders receive a wide variety of organic vegetables over the course of 18-weeks from June through the beginning of October. From fresh greens, spring onions, radishes, and strawberries at the start of the season to highlights of tomatoes, corn, summer squashes, melons, potatoes and more, the share has a little something for everyone.
The Wards brothers are responsible for the cultivation of the land and planting of the crops on our 17 acres. Moose Hill oversees the management, harvesting, and distribution of the crops. Both the groups work on maintaining organic standards for annual certification.
The CSA program at Moose Hill serves many purposes including:
- Offering organic, locally-grown food to our surrounding communities.
- Welcoming families into our fields, in an effort to connect future generations with their food.
- Providing fresh, organic produce to the greater community, giving back to those who are in need
There are two ways to join—the traditional Farm Share or the Work Share.
