Barrett’s Mill Farm

At Barrett’s Mill Farm, we grow over 50 types of vegetables on the historic McGrath Farmstead, which is owned by the town of Concord. We follow organic practices and strive to farm in a way that will keep the land healthy and productive for generations to come. We build soil fertility through the use of cover crops as well as organically approved fertilizers and composts. Whenever possible we seed cover crops following each vegetable crop. Our goal is to have as much of the farm covered as possible before the winter. We also plan to always leave a portion of our land out of vegetable production and managed in cover crop every year. In 2015 we grew vegetables and fruits on 7 acres while seeding the remaining land in cover crops. In 2016, we plan to expand to grow on 8.5 acres. We also believe that diversity is key to a healthy farm, so we grow approximately 50 types of crops and almost 200 different varieties.
