The Farm

Brigham Farm is a 23 acre, family-owned, farm in historic Concord, MA. The farm stand sells our own vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers (in addition to other local produce) between June and October, or you can find us at any of the three farmers' markets we attend during the season!

History

The Brigham family emigrated from England and became one of the founding families of the Sudbury Plantation in the mid-1600s. John Brigham bought the farm in 1824 and it has been passed down through six generations to siblings Jane and Chip, the current farmers.

John Brigham, a wheelwright, was mentioned in Thoreau's journals after their encounters near the Sudbury River. The crops and operation have changed over the years, from a commercial enterprise for the Boston Market, to a greenhouse/winter crop production, to a wholesale and retail business in the mid-1900s to our current farm stand and markets. When the barn burned down in 1971 the current free-standing farm stand was built.

In the past, the farm employed a crew of enthusiastic local high school and college students to carry out much of the field work. Currently, two workers are now renting land from Brigham and growing under the Brigham name.
