My name is Paul Grady and I run Potter Hill Farm in Grafton atop a quiet mile-long hill with incredible views of Worcester and Mt Wachusett. The property is part of 500 contiguous preserved acres and surrounded by hiking trails. We specialize in great-tasting heirloom vegetable varieties, and all of our produce is certified organic. Visitors are encouraged not only by the friendly farmers, but by our chatty flocks of pastured poultry. Community is the cornerstone of our farm – the farm would not exist without your support.

If you are unfamiliar with a CSA, it’s a relatively new and wonderful concept from the farmer’s perspective – the upfront expenses of seeds, supplies, and labor early in the season are steep, while veggies are a labor of love and patience. By paying at the start of the season, your CSA money keeps the farm afloat financially until the harvest starts.

And you, the consumer, benefit equally in this partnership. Just to name a few of the many benefits (click to expand):

Eat seasonally

Forget all the diets, rules, buzz words, and supplements. The easiest way to eat and be healthy is to eat what’s in season. Tomatoes picked green, gassed to ripen, and shipped around the world are completely different in taste and nutrition than a tomato left to ripen on the vine, picked and enjoyed the same day.

Avoid the grocery store trap

Corporations spend millions studying our shopping habits in order to sell us food we don’t need. And millions more tricking our tastes into becoming addicted to it. Unsurprisingly, it’s not healthy food they’re trying to sell us!

Get out of your comfort zone

No more food ruts! Instead of you choosing dinner, let the veggies you get each week choose for you! A local food blogger and friend gets a share in return for posting simple recipes and ideas on how to use your share. There might be veggies you’ve never even heard of before, but chances are you’ll love them once you know how to use them (we’ll help you with that).

Bonus Veggies

Your reward for committing to a season is roughly a 10-15% bonus value depending on which size you choose as a return on your “investment” in the farm. Even more in good years!

Key Details:
-Choose from two sizes below; small or full-size.
-Pickup is Saturdays 10am-1pm (self-serve after 1pm)
-Season runs from 6/20-10/31, with 3 “skip” weeks (very popular last year). I understand life is busy, so I build missing 3 weeks into the price.
-Paying the full amount is most helpful to the farm, but only a non-refundable deposit of $150 is due by March 15th to reserve your spot in the CSA.

Further details can be found in the CSA Agreement.

Thank you for your support!

  • Sorry the CSA always sells out quickly, but a couple people always drop out before the season starts. Choose this option if you’d like to be added to the wait list for the Large Share. Even if you don’t get in this year, being on the wait list guarantees you an early bird sign-up for next year.
