  • Frequently Asked Questions
    • What is the Casey Farm Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program? How do I become a member?

      Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) members support the farm by purchasing a share of certified organically grown vegetables, fruit, herbs, and flowers, which are available to be picked up on a weekly basis from mid-June through October. Spaces in the CSA program become available after January 1. Fall shares are also available for six weeks in November and December. Sign-ups begin in October. Contact the farm office with any questions and to fill out a registration form.

    • Is all of your produce grown organically?

      Yes. We are certified organic by the USDA.

    • Do you offer children’s educational programs?

      Yes. We run Project CHICK, field trips that fulfill curriculum standards, summer camps, and much more. Learn more.

    • Is the farmhouse part of the farm tour?

      Yes, one room of the farmhouse is included on most tours. People on guided tours are introduced to the Casey family and the people who worked the land in our museum gallery room.

    • Can I schedule a private group tour?

      Yes, group tours of ten or more people can be arranged. Learn more.

    • Do you provide admission discounts for EBT cardholders?

      EBT cardholders from all fifty states can show their card for $2 admission to house tours for up to four guests per card.

    • Can I feed or pet the farm animals?

      In order to best care for the farm animals, we ask visitors not to pet or feed them. They have carefully planned diets, and other foods could make them sick. Also, because the farm animals are in a rotation system, they are usually surrounded by an electric fence for their protection.

    • Can I bring my dog to Casey Farm?

      Due to the farm animals and children’s groups that are often present near the farm house, barnyard, and agricultural fields, please leave all pets at home. Thank you for leaving pets at home during the Coastal Growers Market as well. Leashed service animals, of course, are allowed.

      On the hiking trails accessible on the bay side of Boston Neck Road and via the King Preserve ¼ mile north of Casey Farm, leashed dogs and well-behaved owners are welcome, just as long as no children’s groups are present.

    • What are the hours of the farmers’ market? Are you open at other times for the sale of produce?

      The Coastal Growers’ Market runs Saturdays from May through October from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Produce is currently only available through the CSA program and Saturdays, mid-May through October, at the Coastal Growers’ Market at Casey Farm. When fresh eggs are available for sale, often in the winter, we put signs on the road and advertise on our Facebook page.

    • Is Casey Farm available to rent for private functions?

      Yes. A limited number of private events for up to 150 people are held at the farmhouse lawn and gardens each season from mid-May through early September. Learn more.

    • Can I use my metal detector here?

      Historic New England believes that any artifact recovered with or without a metal detector is an integral part of the site and should not be disturbed. Because of that we do not grant permission for anyone to remove any artifact from a site for any reason.

    • May I hunt on your property?

      Our site is designated for public use and also houses farm animals. We do not allow hunting on our property.

    • Can I take photographs at the farm and in the museum gallery?

      Interior and exterior photography for personal use is allowed at Historic New England properties. For the safety and comfort of our visitors on this working farm, we ask that you be aware of your surroundings. Video, camera bags, tripods, and selfie sticks are not permitted. Professional/commercial photographers and members of the media should visit the press room for more information.
