We grow about 7 acres of mixed vegetables, herbs, cut flowers and seedlings at historic Mainstone Farm in Wayland. We grow naturally without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. We never use GMO seeds.

We began leasing land at Mainstone in 2017 after almost 10 years of growing on borrowed and rented spaces in Eastern Massachusetts. Back in 2008, we began growing produce at 5 garden sites located in private yards in the Needham area.
Over the years, garden sites and rented fields came and went. In 2016 we scaled back the number of sites we used, so we could search for a long term home for our farm. We found Mainstone and began moving our entire operation to Wayland. We now have a farm stand with our own vegetables, flowers, herbs, and seedlings, Mainstone's pasture raised beef, and some other great offerings from our neighboring farms.

We grow all our crops without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, although we have not applied for organic certification. We test the soil before we plant, to make sure the soil is healthy, uncontaminated, and suitable for growing food without synthetic inputs. We strive to develop sustainable, low input systems for all our operations. Organic certification is a multi-year process, and has been made more complicated by our changing sites. Certification is something we may pursue in the future. For the moment, we are "all natural."
