Background Garden is a small, diversified vegetable & herb farm near the head of the West Branch of the Westport river in Westport, Massachusetts and just across the border from the village of Adamsville, Rhode Island.

Our approach to land management incorporates vegetable & herb production, livestock and cover cropping in rotation to create a holistic and dynamic farm ecology. We believe that the healthiest food comes from the healthiest ecologies, starting with the soil.

We grow great tasting, nutritionally dense, and historically & culturally significant varieties of vegetables and herbs. We sell at farmer's markets, directly from the farm, and wholesale to restaurants,. We also do local produce deliveries — get in touch for more details.
