Verrill Farm is operated as a partnership between Stephen and Joan Verrill and daughter Jennifer Verrill Faddoul. Our farm consists of about 200 acres in Concord and Sudbury. One hundred acres are prime farmland and 100 acres are wildlife habitats, woodlands, and wetlands. Steve's father and mother moved to Concord in 1918 and started a successful dairy business. In 1957, upon graduation from Cornell University, Steve assumed operation of the farm. In 1982, after years of planning and negotiations, about 200 acres were placed under an Agricultural Preservation Restriction, thus preventing development of this land. This long term commitment gave sharper focus to our agricultural enterprises.
In 1990, the dairy herd was sold and plans began to replace the existing tent retail space with our first farm stand, which was built in 1995 at 11 Wheeler Rd. in Concord. In September of 2009, we opened a new stand in the same location which includes additional retail space and greater convenience for our customers. The stand features our own produce, specialty foods, gifts and flowers. The expanded kitchen/bakery provides high quality baked goods, prepared entrées, homemade soups, and salads.
