In the early 1900′s, Langwater Farm was famous for its Guernsey cows and Clydesdale horses. After that, the farm had been mowed for hay until the Ames family decided to seek out a farmer to begin a community farm for the town of Easton. Working with a non-profit organization, the Ames Realty Trust collected proposals from farmers and ultimately chose the O’Dwyer’s to farm the beautiful land at Langwater Farm. 2010 marked the first growing season at Langwater Farm, named as a nod to the rich history of the land.
Langwater Farm is 80 acres total with half of the land wooded and the other half tilled for crops. Part of the property was originally designed by landscape architect Fredrick Law Olmsted, the creator of Central Park. The beautiful farmland includes fields gently curving against woods, surrounded by stone walls, dirt roads snaking through the woods and fields, all bordered by Langwater Pond to the west.
Beginning in 2014, we were offered the opportunity to expand our production and produce delicious, Certified Organic vegetables on another historic piece of farmland here in Easton. In addition to our 30 acres at Langwater Farm we leased an additional 26 acres in a partnership with the Town of Easton at the Wheaton Farm on Bay Rd. With this new piece of farmland, we were able to expand our production of local, organic veggies by close to 50%.
