About Us / Natick Community Organic Farm History: Founded in 1975, The Natick Community Organic Farm (NCOF) is a 501c3 nonprofit certified-organic farm providing productive open space, farm products, and hands-on education for all ages, year-round.Committed to farming methods that are ecologically healthy and sustainable, the Farm places special emphasis on service to youth through year-round classes, work-experience programs and volunteer opportunities for working the land. NCOF has become an integral part of the Town of Natick’s geographic and agricultural landscape and a rich center of community life.Mothers and fathers bring their children to NCOF to first see farm animals. Gardeners buy organic seedlings in the spring that suit the region's climate and growing season. Families purchase fresh, locally-grown, certified-organic produce, meats, eggs, and maple syrup.School-aged children visiting on field trips study nutrition and the life cycle of plants and animals. Middle school, high school, and college children work in the summer, or on school vacations, or to complete their community service hours. People of special or differing abilities come to do meaningful work and contribute to their community.Thousands of students, volunteers, and community members spanning several generations have now been introduced to the importance of open productive space, organic agriculture, and supporting local farms and farmers.NCOF has served as both a model and a source of inspiration and practical information for several educational- and community-based organic farms in Massachusetts, in Athol, Medway, Cohasset, Concord, Waltham, and Newton, as well as for farms across the country.The Farm continues to advocate organic agriculture, humane animal care, sustainability in life style, and living in an environmentally manner.The farm is open all daylight hours for your visits and purchases.
