Welcome to Yard Birds Farm!
We began our farming careers in Boston working in an urban setting. We learned our trade through friends, experience, conferences, workshops, and making many mistakes along the way! In 2011 we decided to start keeping bees. We had beehives throughout the Boston area. Then we expanded a little more by starting our own small scale farm on a 1/2 acre of land in Boston in 2012. The land was comprised of various friendly families in Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, and Milton who were excited about lending their yards out to us. In return, the landowners received a CSA share of weekly vegetables. When we outgrew our plots, we headed out West, to connect with old friends and new land.
We found an incredible match in our friends at Grass Hill Alpacas (link). Grass Hill Farm is located on 115 acres that has been in the family for over 125 years. The farm is located along Adams Rd. in the Haydenville section of the town of Williamsburg, just 10 minutes from the center of Northampton. Just look for the alpacas out and about!
