The Dahlia Farm is a 6-acre sustainable farm in Middleboro, specializing in chemical-free produce, cut flowers, herbs and free-range eggs. We market primarily through a CSA program, farmers markets, restaurants and cut flower venues. Although the CSA program began only recently, the cut flower and produce farm has actually operated since the late 19th century, and was at one time the largest dahlia farm in New England, operating internationally through a catalog business.
Recently additions to our equipment include a "new" Ford Jubilee tractor (as well as John Deere plow and trailer). This fully-restored 1953 antique will be the workhorse of our plowing operation (watch for a future video of our farm in operation)
We are newly members of CERTIFIED NATURALLY GROWN. (Similar to USDA organic certification but CNG is an industry certifier of chemical-free farming rather than a governmental one). A grassroots organization, inspections of sustainable farming operations are done by competing farms throughout the United States.
Presently we are also on the USDA list for the 'Obama Garden' high-tunnel pilot program. This is a Federal 3-year study program looking at the feasibility of extended-season produce growing, using hoop houses (or 'poly-tunnels'). The NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) is the local Ag Dept subsidiary handling the project. If approved, we’d be eligible for a grant to build a portable 2000 square foot greenhouse.
