Local farms follow a long history of Cape Cod agriculture, form the foundation of our relationship with food, and help shape the rural character of our communities. Locally grown produce, economic opportunities, niche products, and community involvement are just some of the benefits offered by your local, small town farm.

At the Harwich Conservation Trust, we hope to cultivate common ground between local farms and our land protection endeavors. For example, striving for sustainable management of natural resources is vital to viable farms as well as important for land and water resources. Also, our local economy is largely supported by visitors from far and wide who choose Cape Cod because of the quality of our natural resources and sense of place.

To cultivate common ground, here are links to some local farms. Enjoy your experience and thank you for visiting.
