Natick Community Organic Farm (NCOF) is a nonprofit, diversified educational farm located on 30 acres of conservation land in Metrowest Boston. For forty years, NCOF has served as an incredible community resource and national model of how to successfully provide productive open space, farm products, and hands-on education to people of all ages, year-round. NCOF places special emphasis on service to youth through classes, work-experience programs and volunteer opportunities for working the land. NCOF is open every day during daylight hours with no admission fee so that everyone can walk the fields, view the livestock, and learn for themselves the value of sustainable farms, farmers, productive land, and healthy food. Our teen programs provide well-paying, mentored work as well as life-skills development and training for community teens, including those who wish to become future farmers.
