Since 2014, The Food Project has stewarded the Reynolds Farm in Wenham. This picturesque farm sits on 34 acres of conservation land owned by the town of Wenham. At the Reynolds Farm, we currently grow vegetables on five acres and cover crops on the remaining fields to build soil health.
Much of the food grown here supports our CSA farm shares, providing sustainably-grown, local produce to CSA customers in the community. Produce from the Reynolds Farm also supports our food access initiatives in the city of Lynn, through multiple SNAP/HIP-accessible farmers’ markets and donations to several hunger relief organizations.
Drive by the Reynolds Farm on a summer day and you’ll see dozens of teenagers who have gathered together from Wenham, Lynn, and surrounding towns. These young people gain hands-on experience with sustainable agriculture while participating in food security and social justice workshops, leading volunteers on the farm, and exploring innovative ways to expand food access.
