New Entry Sustainable Farm Project is Hosting its Annual Farm Tour in Massachusetts
Join us for an evening of local food, beverages, prizes, and meet your farmers! 9th Annual Farm Tour
Each year, New Entry Sustainable Farming Project opens our ‘doors’ and welcomes the community for a tour at our incubator farm sites for an afternoon of fun and farming in the field! The tour gives an insider’s view of the beginning farmer incubator training sites and what it takes to farm on ¼ acre.
Use this opportunity to learn from project farmers and staff about our beginning farmer training programs, our farmland preservation efforts, and farm employment resources. Discover what motivates New Entry farmers and hear first-hand the challenges and joys of starting a small farm business. And most importantly, explore where your food comes from! Also, enjoy some delicious appetizers made with locally-grown produce right from the farms.
Our two incubator farms in Dracut, MA are located at 126 Jones Ave. and 25 Wildlife Way. Please meet at 126 Jones Ave in Dracut.
The event is free and open to all New Entry friends and supporters. Click here to register.
The Farm Tour will happen rain or shine! Note that our farm site is not handicap accessible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

New Entry, an initiative of Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy and additional partners, works locally, regionally, and across the country to strengthen local food systems by supporting new farmers. We serve and collaborate with the people, communities, and organizations in Massachusetts, the Northeast, and beyond!
The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project’s (New Entry) mission is to improve our local and regional food systems by training the next generation of farmers to produce food that is sustainable, nutritious, and culturally-appropriate and making this food accessible to individuals regardless of age, mobility, ethnicity, or socio-economic status. In doing this work, we provide critical training, career development, and economic opportunity to new farmers.
