You do not have access to view this node CSA Shares are available now! The farm vegetable share starts in just a couple weeks. If you haven't signed up for your share yet, now is the time to do it. Members always have lots of choice in their share and we have flexible pick-up times. It's a great way to support the farm. So many members tell us that their weekly trips to the farm really help them unwind. The farm needs local support now to ensure that they can continue to grow some of the finest locally-grown, organic produce available on the North Shore!
We cultivate 6 acres of vegetables on Apple Street in Essex and at a few satellite fields in town. We also raise meat chickens, dairy goats, laying hens, turkeys, ducks, geese, and pigs. Although we are not certified organic, we follow organic standards: no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, or GMO seed. We use organic feeds for our livestock when they're not on pasture. Our focus is on improving the soil and growing high-quality food.
Tender Crop Farm offers fruits, vegetables, plants, dried flowers novelties, Christmas trees and dÃ©cor, and food products including prepared foods, baked goods and a butchery. The retail barn is a historic 1600's cow barn. There is a petting zoo with a buffalo and llamas. Children can buy food to feed to the animals.
Pick your own fresh fruit and vegetables including apples, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches and more! Farm animals for petting, play area and picnic area. This is a great place to take children for a leisurely afternoontaking a hayride to the picking fields and visiting the barn where they make the best apple cider doughnuts you have ever had!
