Dragonfly Farms is located in Pepperell, Massachusetts. We actively manage over 20 acres of cropland with approximately 12-14 acres in vegetables each year.  All our produce is grown using organic methods, however we are not certified organic (by choice).

We market our vegetables via a 200 member summer CSA, 3 local farmers markets, a small farmstand, and a few small wholesale accounts.

We are hiring for two different positions this year.  To apply for either please email a resume as well as a cover letter explaining your desire to work in this field to farminfo@dragonfly-farms.com
