Osamequin Farm as you have known and loved it!

In 2018, Osamequin Farm embarked on a new adventure, bringing on Resident Farmers and establishing an educational non-profit.

Some things are changing at Osamequin Farm, but many things will remain the same!

A deep history

Learn more about the history of the land where you’ll find Osamequin Farm, as well as the story behind our logo image, on the History page.

Berries

Our beloved Pick Your Own blueberry field will continue to be organically cared for and open for business in the summer. In addition, we'll have PYO raspberries and blackberries!

Board of Directors

The Jencks family, who have owned and cared for the farm since the early 1900s, are not going anywhere! Brothers Andrew and Stephen are the directors of the farm's new project. You can reach them with any questions at andrew@osamequinfarm.com or stephen@osamequinfarm.com.

Flower Hill

Farm Director Sarah Turkus grows two acres of organically-raised, chemical free cut flowers and culinary and medicinal herbs at Osamequin Farm. Learn more about Flower Hill and it’s offerings on the Flowers page.

Heritage pigs

Visit the farm to meet our three female American guinea hogs, living their best life while helping to keep invasive vines and shrubs from establishing along our stone walls.

A new chapter

In addition to raising sustainably grown crops, we are raising a community by hosting educational events and seasonal gatherings, as well as sharing our space with the community. If you have an event or idea that you think Osamequin Farm would be suited for, contact the Farm Director.

Resident Farmers

Many farmers call the land at Osamequin Farm their home, sharing resources such as produce washing facilities and cold storage for their crops. Learn more about the businesses that are part of the Osamequin Cooperative Farming Project on our Resident Farmers page.

Meet the Farm Director

Sarah Turkus manages the farm’s interwoven objectives - sustainable farming, community engagement, and education.
On any given day you’ll find her pruning the blueberries, harvesting dahlias, planning a workshop, stirring a pot of marigold dye, washing duck eggs, or reviewing spreadsheets in her office. Sarah has had farmer hands since 2010, and Mabel has been at her side chasing deer away from the fields since 2015.

Pick Your Own Sunnies

Our Pick Your Own Sunflowers field blooms along Prospect St! You can “Join the Sunny Club” and pre-buy visits to the field all summer, or come pick by the stem and bring home a bundle of sunshine. Be sure to sign up for our Newsletter so you’ll get the alert when the PYO field opens.

Free range duck eggs

Always available at our self service stand, fresh eggs from our golden layers.

Botanical dyeing

Plants offer an incredible variety of earth tones when turned into dye and applied to fibers. We host periodic natural dyeing events, creating dyed fiber from the resources and flowers at the farm, which you can find on our Events page. We also offer the option to book your own private event! These are an amazing creative option for a bridal shower or birthday party, youth group, or just a fun project for a few friends. Contact Sarah for details and to reserve your date.
