Description: First Root is a little vegetable farm with a big heart. We are young farmers who grow food with love. Founded in 2009, First Root has grown from a small start-up into a thriving CSA. We farm on 2.5 acres of historic farmland in Minute Man National Historical Park in Concord, MA. We use organic and sustainable growing practices because we want this land to be fertile and healthy for many years to come.
