Dragonfly Farms is a diverse vegetable farm located in Pepperell, Massachusetts. We grow all our vegetables without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We believe strongly in feeding the soil to produce a healthy plant and spend many of our resources in building up and sustaining organic matter in the soil via various cover crops, organic soil admendments, compost, and crop rotations. Healthly nutrient rich soil grows healthly plants!
In the conventional/industrialized food system the average meal travels 1,500 miles before reaching your table. With this highly centralized food chain it is impossible to know how your food was grown, washed, packaged, stored, and transported. Conversely, local food systems build community and develop regional identity and character. They provide more meaningful livelihoods for food and agriculture workers, encourage community interaction, and build respectful relationships. We see no reason that communities cannot feed themselves and are betting on it by doing our best to grow and sell our produce locally using local resources.
