We will be reopening for our spring organic plant sale in mid-May 2015 (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10:00am–5:00pm, through June) with vegetable, herb, and flower plants for your garden.
On Monday, June 22, 2015, from 6–8 PM, Russ Cohen [click here for his website], one of the region's foremost wild edible plant experts, will lead the 15th annual wild edible plant walk on the farm. Don't miss it! This walk is always amazing.
Now Hiring at Blue Heron Organic Farm
Blue Heron Organic Farm is looking for farm workers for the 2015 farming season (June, July and August)!
This will be farmer Ellery Kimball's fifteenth season running this certified organic farm. The farm produces seven acres of diversified annual crops including a large pick-your-own flower garden. Produce is sold from a road-side stand located on the farm, to over a dozen restaurants in the Boston area (twice a week) and two farmer's markets. Although more a farm job than an internship, workers will learn a variety of skills including: transplanting, cultivation, harvesting as well as preparing vegetables for retail and deliveries. The job mostly involves the cultivation and weeding of crops. We do not use tractors for cultivation so all weeding is done by hand. Workers will also learn other relevant organic farming practices such as crop rotation, soil management, composting, pest and disease control, leading groups of volunteers and selling produce at farmer's markets. Employees must have a great sense of humor, be efficient and hard working, have a positive attitude, have good knees and a strong back, be able to lift 50 pounds, work well independently as well as with others and have a passion for organic agriculture and the environment. Workers must also be friendly, positive and helpful with customers, volunteers and children who come to visit the farm. We work in the field rain or shine (100% outside, as there are no buildings on the farm.) We do not offer housing.
Blue Heron Organic Farm is looking for full-time or part-time workers for June, July, August. To apply please send a resume and cover letter to farmer Ellery Kimball: ellerywk@hotmail.com [www.blueheronfarmlincoln.com] - I will be conducting interviews starting in March. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you.

Blue Heron Organic Farm was featured in a cooking class at Rialto Restaurant in Cambridge! Green Salad with figs, pears, gorgonzola, nuts, sea salt; Fettuccine with herbs, olive oil and garlic; and Honey and Saffron Roasted Chicken with root vegetables, yum! Thanks to Chef Jody Adams and everyone at Rialto!

We offer pick-your-own flowers from the flower labyrinth from late June through October, priced by the stem. If you are interested in buying flowers for your wedding please contact the farmer (contact info at the bottom of the page). See this newsletter from last year for an idea of the flower selection.

We just harvested hops on the farm with Peak Organic Brewing! See this video featuring us and other local farmers growing hops. And taste us in their pale ale!

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.
