Down on the farm

LINCOLN

I spent yesterday morning under the hot sun weeding rows of chard and cabbage at Drumlin Farm in Lincoln. I'm a member of their community-supported agriculture program, which provides me with a weekly ration of fresh, locally-grown produce throughout the summer and fall. Members are invited to volunteer at the farm to see first-hand how their food is grown, and get a sneak preview of the coming weeks' supply.

Interested in finding a CSA program near you?
