Heart Beets Farm was started by Stephen and Sarah Murray in 2014. The farm is located on a 5 acre rented portion of Kettle Pond Farm, located between the Taunton River and Assonet Neck in Berkley, MA. We rent this land from Alex and Chris Houtzager (owners of Kettle Pond Farm) and it has been certified Organic since 2007. In 2015 we added another plot of land from long term members, Rick and Michelle Houghton, right down the street! In 2019 we added the Moskal property located up the street from the home farm (@ 125 BayView Ave). In total for 2019 we are Organically managing 36 acres, keeping Agriculture alive in Berkley.
We are a true family farm, from the production of the vegetables to the home made meals. We derive our entire income from the farm, raise our kids on the farm, eat from the farm and live on the farm.
Heart Beets Farm is mainly a CSA farm, with pick-up on farm in Berkley and off farm in Mattapoisett (@ RopeWalk) and the Ice Cream Barn (Swansea). We also sell to Chamberlain Farm and Pavillon and harvest bulk orders for other independent chefs and home cooks. You can also find us at the Bristol Mount Hope Saturday Market and the SOAM markets. We are currently one of the very few certified Organic Vegetable farms in Bristol County.
