We are extremely excited that 2018 will mark New Harmony Farm’s official passage to becoming a part of the nonprofit Earth Harmony Sanctuary. The transition will encompass growing our infrastructure, programming and community offerings designed to reconnect with the earth and each other.
New Harmony Farm, is a two acre certified organic vegetable, herb, and flower farm that is part of the 16 acre Sanctuary. While it is the only certified organic farm in the greater Newburyport area, we take organic practice to a deeper level through our commitment to biological growing practices, permaculture principles and a low till/no-till system. We are committed to working with Nature to build soil life and crop immunities through optimal nutrition and cultivation practices that grow delicious, nutrient-rich produce.
Inspired by the Shakers dedication to building harmonious community through Spirit, beauty, mutual care and innovation, our vision brings together art, science, and a sacred appreciation of Nature. We strive to sustain our community with nutritious organic food while promoting a more intimate understanding of our inter-dependence with nature.
CSA & Farm Stand
We offer Summer and Fall/Winter CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) harvest shares. Our Summer CSA, runs 18 weeks June - mid October and our Fall/Winter CSA has 13-14 harvest distributions October - March.
As part of our mission to educate and promote biodiversity we offer a wide variety of heirloom, unusual, and native vegetables along with delicious recipes to more fully enjoy our bounty. We also offer a pick-your-own herb and flower share at our Newbury Farm gardens.
In addition the farm has a self-serve farm stand at 186 High Rd in Newbury featuring all our own certified organic produce.
Farmstand - 186 High Rd. Newbury
Our self-serve farm stand and primary CSA distribution pick-up is located our farm at 186 High Rd. Newbury, The farm stand is open daily, Sunday-Saturday during the harvest season (June 17 -September) from 10 AM -6:00 PM. In October we are open Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays 10 AM -6:00 PM.
We see our farm as an inter-species healing center. We are working towards restoring a healthy soil system through minimal tillage, multi-species cover-cropping, soil mineralization, and introducing beneficial microorganisms. We are increasing the biodiversity of the farm through perennial and native annual plantings that will increase vital habitat for pollinators, butterflies and native fauna.
I can tell you that the taste, quality, size and freshness of the produce will blow you away. I have never had food with more nutrient density. I am grateful that New Harmony Farm plants heirloom seeds and not GMO veggies and fruits. I really believe that food is thy medicine and the food from New Harmony Farms really heals."
