Introduction and CSA Sign Up 
 

Greetings Medway Community Farm members and  community at large
 
As Medway Community Farm's new Farm Manager and someone new to the community, I wanted to say hello and tell you how excited I am to be at the farm! I'm looking forward to meeting you all personally and seeing everyone out and about. 

As way of an introduction, I've been farming on a production scale now many years and before that my wife, Christine, and I were growing a small market garden in a community garden plot. It was such a great way to start because we were surrounded by people who were master growers and had the scrappy mentality to use what they could find to better their practices – something small farms and farmers do every day. I've had amazing mentors over the years (still do!) and started my farming journey on a small non-profit farm in Framingham. I love the idea of a farm being a central place and space for local communities, where people can see old friends and meet new ones, wander the fields, and feel a sense of pride that this farm is here for them. 


My goal for this season is to build on the already vibrant community that is here at MCF and continue to make the farm a place of inclusion for people of all walks of life. I'm looking forward to helping steer the farm towards more efficient systems, creating a place of even more beauty than already exists, growing more financial sustainability, and of course using farming practices that hold ecological balance, environmental stewardship, and sustainability as core principles.
Please stop in to say hello, and I hope that you'll enjoy the 2018 season and everything the farm can provide.
Warmly,
Seth

Medway Community Farm is sad to announce the departure of our Farm Manager, Katie Bekel. We wish her well in her future endeavors, in farming and making healthy and safe food available to more communities, and beyond. We appreciate Katie’s hard work and determined efforts on behalf of MCF, in support of our mission, and as an advocate for preserving local farmland, promoting farms, encouraging farm supporters like you, and farmers in their work.

We will keep the Medway community up-to-date on developments for the 2018 season, CSA shares, and farm stand vegetable availability when we know more, as we actively seek the best candidate to fill this position.
