We have successfully completed our well for an irrigation system thanks to all your donations. We have also put up a new greenhouse to help us with our transplants and plant sale, and to help with season extension in coming years. Thank you for all your support and donations over the years! We will continue to bring fresh local organic food to the community.

The mission of Blue Heron Organic Farm is to increase the availability of locally produced food and to raise awareness about ecologically sound farming practices. Through selling produce from one of the few remaining organic farm stands in the area, offering a pick-your-own flower garden (as well as PYO raspberries, peas, and cherry tomatoes), guiding volunteers, creating a healthy and fun environment for children and establishing regular community events, Blue Heron Organic Farm aims to promote a deeper sense of community among the residents of Lincoln. Through supplying Boston area restaurants with local Certified Organic produce and donating what we do not sell to soup kitchens and shelters, we involve the surrounding communities as well.
