We welcome you to come visit the farm!
The Farm is open for CSA Share distribution from June through Thanksgiving, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-7pm, and Saturdays from 8am-1pm. Visitors are welcome to come by the farm at those times as well, and should check in with our Shop Keeper upon arrival.
We grow a Pick Your Own Garden for all CSA shareholders to enjoy. The PYO Garden is not open to the general public. The PYO Garden shines from mid-June through early September. Picking in the gardens in the rain is fine (and sometimes fun); but out of an utmost of caution, the PYO Gardens are closed during any periods of thunder or lightning, and then for 30 minutes following thunder or lightning. Eastern Massachusetts shareholders can contact us at the farm for details about visiting the farm during times of the week when the farm CSA shop is usually closed.
Shareholders and visitors are welcome to walk through the expansive fields, to picnic at the tables, and to play in the sandbox. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times. For safety reasons, the greenhouses and the barns (except for the CSA Shop and the bathroom) are not open to shareholders or visitors.
Picadilly Farm complies with the regulations of the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act. Therefore, we must inform our shareholders and visitors of these food safety considerations:
There is a toilet and hand washing sink in the farm crew Break Room. Please wash your hands before handling farm produce.
Diapers may be changed only in the bathroom or at your car, not out in the field.
Visitors may not bring pets to the farm. Service Dogs should be leashed as possible, and waste must be cleaned up and disposed of by the dog’s handler.
Smoking and tobacco use is allowed only in the parking lot.
These are best practices in the PYO Garden: use the PYO scissors and pruners only for cutting the produce. If you bring your own, please be sure they are clean before use; avoid harvesting produce that appears to have been contaminated by animal waste; avoid harvesting produce that has fallen on the ground; only harvest from rows that are marked with PYO signs; for optimum safety, please wash your produce before you eat it.
