Lexington Community Farm Coalition (LexFarm) is a non-profit certified organic farm. We are committed to increasing access to organic produce for households of all income levels. LexFarm provides hands-on education to foster connections to farmland, farming, and each other, through workshops, our CSA, and volunteer programs. LexFarm was founded in 2009 in an effort to preserve the 7.9 acre Busa Farm upon its sale to the Town of Lexington. LexFarmincorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2011 and is currently in its seventh year of production on five acres. Produce is sold through a 200 share 20- week summer CSA, 75 share 4-week fall CSA, 60 share summer flower CSA, and farm stand. We have a busy flower and vegetable seedling sale during May weekends. We donate produce through two local food rescue organizations. In 2020 farm production will focus on improving yields, increasing efficiency, and improving soil health through reduced tillage, improved drainage, compost production, and targeted amendments
- Farmstand Assistant
- The Farmstand Assistant will work closely with the Farmstand Manager to set up, stock, and operate the farm stand retail store before, during, and after CSA distribution and retail hours. The Farmstand assistant will help the Farmstand Manager manage the quality of the farm stand and retail shopping and CSA pickup experience. The farmstand assistant will help harvest and arrange flowers for our cut-flower program as time allows.
- Farmstand Work Share
- The Farmstand Work Shares will be responsible for helping with all aspects of running the farmstand. The LexFarm farmstand provides seedlings, fresh vegetables, flowers, and a variety of value added products from June through October. The work shares will assist customers, restock the store, and keep things clean and beautiful. Help us make our farmstand successful by trading one afternoon of work for a full season vegetable CSA share!
