Wright-Locke Farm uses certified organic practices that are reviewed and approved each year by Baystate Organic Certifiers. We grow a wide range of market crops throughout the season on a little more than 2 acres of cultivated land and use the edges and additional 20-acre property to forage and harvest wild plants.
Using organic practices means we use less harsh methods (and only certified organic products) to fertilize, cultivate, and combat pests and diseases than conventional growers. We follow the National Organic Standards set forth by the USDA. Organic does not mean that we never spray or treat our crops, but that we do so only when absolutely necessary, endeavoring to use less, less often, and only using certified organic products.
As a small farm, our fields are primarily cultivated by hand and with small tractors. We rely on one full-time farmer, a flower farmer, a small team of seasonal staff, and a host of volunteers to plant our crops, tend our fields and animals, and harvest our produce throughout the year.
Our main crops include raspberries, lettuces, kale and other greens, beets, onions, garlic, summer and winter squashes, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, potatoes, peas, beans, radishes, turnips, carrots, blueberries, rhubarb, concord grapes, and more. We also grow herbs, cultivate many varieties of flowers, and raise farm animals for products (fresh eggs and raw honey).
