Specialty Cut Flowers
Cut Flowers Available: Spring, summer, fall (see chart)

NCOF grows high-quality, certified-organic cut annuals, perennials, woody shrubs, and greenery. We are known for our outstanding dahlias, zinnias, and sunflowers. Cut flowers are sold in mixed bouquets and in straight bunch from early June until frost. Bouquets are available to the public at our market stands, through shares at NCOF and through delivered arranged flower share program. We also supply hospital gift shops and restaurants; email us for details and pricing.


 

Maple Syrup

Available: Year-round as supplies last

NCOF boils approximately 120 to 250 gallons every February and March from sap collected in buckets hung on sugar maple trees throughout Natick, Dover, Sherborn, and Wellesley. Total annual yield is completely weather dependent. Some years are bountiful while others are busts. NCOF syrup is sold ungraded. Learn about our maple sugaring tours here.

 

 

Eggs

Available: Daily

Eggs are sold by the dozen or in whatever quantity the Farm's organically-fed, free-range chickens lay them. Eggs are a hot commodity. We suggest visiting the Farm right at chore time — approximately 9:30 AM and 4:00 PM daily — if you wish to purchase them!

NCOF raises 150 organically-fed, free-range turkeys each year. $30 is required to reserve a bird. Birds are processed the week before Thanksgiving and available on a designated turkey pick-up day. Click here for details.


Salad Greens & Braising Greens

Available: Fall and winter (greenhouse-grown)

The farm grows a mix of tasty salad greens and braising greens throughout the winter in its passive solar greenhouses. Nothing beats a fresh, locally-grown salad or a warm plate of stir-fried greens on a cold day! Some of the crops in our mesclun mix include curly and broadleaf cress, mizuna, arugula, collards, spinach, endive frizee, sorrel, parsley, kale, and many types of lettuce. Our braising mix features Asian greens, chards, beet greens, pac choi, and mustards. The composition of both mixes change as the season progresses.
