Kitchen Garden Farm is a 50-acre, certified organic farm located in Sunderland, MA, the heart of the fertile Pioneer Valley. Owners Caroline Pam and Tom Wilcox are passionate about all things food, and dedicated to the craft of growing the most delicious produce possible. On their 25 acres of farmland a diverse array of organic vegetables grow.After purchasing their first parcel of land in 2006 the couple spent many years acquiring more acreage while painstakingly converting the previously conventionally farmed land to organic farming. Caroline and Tim are committed to growing healthy soils by cultivating a wide range of biodiverse crops, improving crop rotation and cover cropping. In 2014 the farm received organic certification and the Boston Organics Community has been enjoying the bounty of the produce and products - like fire roasted chili or tomatillo salsa and naturally fermented sriracha - from Kitchen Garden Farm since 2015.
So far this year, Boston Organics' customers have enjoyed bunched root crops and early spring produce like baby bok choy and mustard greens, be on the look out for the coveted summer harvest of cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, peppers and eggplant from Kitchen Garden Farm.
The duo is highly involved in their local community: Caroline is a periodic contributor to Edible Pioneer Valley and a monthly contributor for the Daily Hampshire Gazette. If you have a second, take a moment and read her article about women in farming!
