When the Wright-Locke Farm Conservancy began operating the Farm in 2008, we started small- with an aging raspberry field and a single building, the Squash House, with a leaking roof and doors that could not be opened. Today, we are a bustling community farm offering a wide range of certified organic crops, education programs for children and adults, and special events for the community. All of our efforts are led by a small team of employees who are greatly supported by the organization’s Board of Directors, numerous volunteers, and the financial support of our generous donors. There are numerous ways to get involved throughout the year, and we warmly encourage your support. Buy our crops, participate in our programs and events, lend a hand, or make a donation. Every bit of help enables us to grow stronger and better each year.
