Appleton Farms CSA

 

Appleton Farms in Hamilton and Ipswich is one of the oldest continuously operating farms in the United States. Established in 1638 by a land grant to Samuel Appleton, it is the oldest working farm in Massachusetts, and at 1,000 acres, one of the largest. Perhaps more importantly, the farm preserves a bucolic, pastoral landscape, agricultural traditions, and historic farm buildings that are rapidly disappearing in the eastern part of the state.

Community Supported Agriculture
To connect people with the land, a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program was established in 2002. CSA members buy shares and share in the rewards of farming, and receive a rich bounty of fresh produce, flowers and other farm products. The 100 shares available in the first year sold out in two weeks. Today, we grow about 540 shares. While you do have to sign up to a waiting list to get a share, we invite you to use the links to the right to learn more about Appleton Farms and Community Supported Agriculture.
