Sweet Corn & Fruit Share
F.A.Q.'s
(Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: What will my ten-week Sweet Corn & Fruit Share consist of?

A: Your weekly Corn & Fruit Share will be a half-bushel box (same size box as Siena Farms' vegetable shares) and will be approximately half full of local sweet corn (one dozen ears on average, depending on ear-size) topped with a seasonal selection of local orchard fruit from Brookdale Farm and other area orchards. Your fruit selection will showcase New England favorites such as peaches, white peaches, nectarines, pears, plums, and a variety of late summer and early autumn apples. Your corn will come from either Brookdale Farm or Verrill Farm, and will usually have been harvested the very same morning you receive it.

Q: Where is Brookdale Fruit Farm, and what is their connection to Siena Farms?

A: Brookdale Fruit Farm (brookdalefarms.com) is a 7th generation family farm in Hollis, NH. Farmer Chris of Siena Farms has come to know Brookdale through his daughter Siena's close friendship with nine-year-old Hollis, a member of Brookdale's 7th generation. The Hardy family, who owns and farms this large, beautiful orchard in southern NH, really know their craft, and grow some of the most beautiful local fruit we've seen and tasted. We are excited to nurture a relationship between our two farms and provide you, our CSA members, with access to their beautiful fruits that we don't currently grow at Siena Farms.

Q: Where is Verrill Farm, and what is their connection to Siena Farms?

A: Verrill Farm (verrillfarm.com) is just down the road from us here at Siena Farms, in historic Concord, MA.  Many of their fields are actually interspersed with ours as you drive around the neighborhood, so they are truly neighbors as well as being mentors to us here at Siena.  Steve and Joan Verrill, who are in their eighties now, run their 200-acre farm along with their daughter Jennifer, complete with one of the most impressive farm stands in Massachusetts.  Verrill's sweet corn has long been known as the best around, and we feel so lucky to be able to source it for your Corn & Fruit Share.

Q: Does Brookdale and/or Verrill Farm grow their produce organically?

A: As you probably know, sweet corn and fruits are much harder to grow organically with consistent quality than the wide variety of diversified vegetables we grow here at Siena Farms. Both Verrill and Brookdale practice IPM (Integrated Pest Management) in the farming of their corn and their orchard fruit, described eloquently here on Verrill Farm's website. The Hardys and the Verrills are very talented, experienced farmers who care a great deal about their farmland, their customers, and the quality of their product.
