Urban Oaks Organic Farm

About Urban Oaks:

It began in 1999 with a VISION:

an inner-city organic farm to help save a neighborhood.

Next, the CHALLENGE:

clearing trees, shrubs and weeds from 2 1/2 acres of land and 15,000 square feet of shattered greenhouses at an abandoned florist site.

Today, we are Urban Oaks Organic Farm, the first of our kind in the nation.

Owned by the non-profit Urban Oaks Community Development Corporation, we’re dedicated to growing top-quality, certified organic fresh produce, year-round, for restaurants, specialty markets and our local community.

OUR SPECIALTIES are salad greens, cooking greens, heirloom tomatoes and herbs. But we grow more: sweet peppers, hot peppers, frying peppers, Italian and Asian eggplant, melons, cucumbers, summer squash, zucchini and all the crops you’d expect in the summer in southern New England.

We harvest lettuces, salad greens, kales, chard, spinach, collards, herbs and more from our greenhouses 12 months a year.

Visitors are always welcome, so please stop in to say hello or visit our farmstand which is every Friday from 3 to 6 and Saturdays from 10 to 1 August through October,
