Where We Grow More Than Just Pumpkins
We are a small diversified farm operated by Jason & Nicole Lobisser. We started out growing pumpkins for local farm stands in 2004 so hence the name The Pumpkin Farm!
We have grown over the years and changed many aspects of our farm. We raise all of our livestock in Millis on leased land we gained access to in 2012. We started off small growing Pumpkins & Vegetables and soon expanded into Eggs, Beef, Lamb & Chicken that we offered for sale at our home in Medway at our self serve honor stand and at local farmers markets. We partner with Red Maple Farm in Royalston to provide Pork for our customers.
Our farm is operated using sustainable farming practices and we use no synthetic fertilizer, pesticide, herbicide or fungicide. Instead we plant green manures & apply compost to the fields, practice crop rotation, weed mechanically & by hand, and use row covers on crops to protect from pests. Our animals have plenty of outside access, in fields or in the forest.
2020 has been a challenging year for our farm. It has helped us realize what we need to focus on to provide our customers with fresh local food in a sustainable manner. 2021 will bring many changes as we learn to adapt in our changing environment. Stay tuned for changes on the farm and watch us as we continue our journey to help feed the community!
Our farm is a SNAP authorized retailer participating in the HIP program through the MA DTA. You can participate in the HIP program at our farmers market locations!
