Baker Bridge Farm
At the Baker Bridge Farm, The Food Project stewards 31 acres of conservation land in Lincoln, MA) approximately 15 miles outside of Boston), growing vegetables, herbs, flowers, and cover crops.
Much of the food grown here supports our food access initiatives in Boston’s Dudley neighborhood, supplementing the produce grown on our urban farms. This produce is distributed to our SNAP/HIP-accessible farmers’ market on the Dudley Town Common, donated to several hunger relief organizations, and sold through The Food Project’s CSA farm share.
Drive by the Baker Bridge Farm on a summer day and you’ll see dozens of teenagers, hailing from Acton to Boston and everywhere in between, who have come together to work towards the shared purpose of growing food. These young people gain hands-on experience with sustainable agriculture while participating in workshops about food justice and sustainable agriculture, leading volunteers on the farm, and exploring innovative ways to expand food access.
Operation of this site is made possible through a continuing partnership with the Town of Lincoln’s Conservation Commission. The Food Project has been farming in Lincoln since 1992 and working at this plot of land since 1998.
