Farms in & near Concord MA
These products are harvested at the peak of ripeness, not days or weeks before so they can be shipped long distances. Local produce is what fine restaurants favor because it has the best flavor, freshness and appearance.
Most of these farms have farm stands open to all. (Check each website for days and hours of operation.) Some also offer CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares: you pay a membership fee and gain the right to continuing quantities of produce harvested at its peak.
