We are proud to be a family-run business. The farmers (that’s us!) are an energized crew with diverse and converging backgrounds in small-scale sustainable agriculture.

Kevin O’Dwyer Before starting Langwater Farm, Kevin was the head grower at Wards Berry Farm, a 150 acre diversified fruit and vegetable farm in Sharon. He started working summers there as field crew at age 14, and continued working there through high school and college before being hired on full time. He is most passionate about growing tomatoes and has enjoyed developing his building skills as we create the infrastructure we need to run the farm.
Rory O’Dwyer is happy to be back in her home state after living in California for a few years. Rory apprenticed for four years on two diversified CSA farms in Massachusetts before starting Farm Girl Farm, a CSA and market farm in North Egremont, MA. She enjoys being involved in all aspects of vegetable production on the farm, as well as being the chief flower grower.
Kate O’Dwyer grew up in North Attleboro, MA. She also worked for a number of years at Ward’s Berry Farm in the farmstand. Kate and Kevin met at UMass Amherst, where they both attended college. They were married in 2009. In January 2013, Kate left her position as a foster care and adoption social worker and is now excited to be at the farm full time!
Madison O’Dwyer, Kate and Kevin’s daughter, is the newest member of the team!
