The farm is located on land farmed since the arrival of European settlers, and no doubt prior to that time, by the native Americans indigenous to the area. The land has been in the White family for six generations and is now privately owned, occupied and maintained by three branches of the family who make portions of the land available to the community for visiting at their discretion. In 1998, Frank and Jean White started an organic farm on approximately 5 acres of their property adjacent to Jerusalem Rd. In 2002 they established the non-profit Friends of Holly Hill Farm which now oversees the farm operation and runs a variety of educational and community activities. Jean White (pictured) remains a daily fixture on the farm, as do other members of the family who you may also happen to see.
Certified organic since 2000, our growing and harvesting practices respect the land while delivering fresh vegetables, herbs, flowers and honey to our farm stand, select local restaurants, and the Cohasset and Scituate Farmer's Markets. Our farm intern programs help train the next generation about sustainable farming.
Our award-winning farm stand (Best of Boston 2017) features an old school "farm account" for customers. We offer a curated selection of artisanal products and partnerships with ethically sourced meat producers.
