About Northeast Harvest

Northeast Harvest is a Buy Local program representing Essex and Middlesex counties supported by the Essex Agricultural Society. Northeast Harvest works to help sustain the farmers and agricultural producers of both counties in Massachusetts. We work in collaboration with many other organizations as well as individual growers and agricultural producers to highlight the number and variety of farms and food products that are available in northeastern Massachusetts.

Our Mission

To help consumers discover, enjoy and support the farmers and local agriculture in Essex and Middlesex Counties.

The Area Northeast Harvest Serves

In northeastern Massachusetts, within a 35 mile radius north of Boston, there are hundreds of local farms producing a wide variety of fresh products - fruit and berries, vegetables, cheese, honey, delicious ice cream and baked goods as well as unique products such as llama wool and rare varieties of flowers.

You can shop at farm stands, farmers' markets, pick-your-own berries, discover native plants for your garden, or just appreciate the vistas of working farm land. Come visit and enjoy the farms and agriculture of Essex and Middlesex Counties.
