The meetings of the Newton Farm Commission will be held quarterly at 7:00 p.m. in Room 209 (Planning Conference Room) unless otherwise noted. Additional meetings may be held as necessary throughout the year. Please view the agenda for more information on meetings here.

In 2005 the Community Preservation Committee and Board of Aldermen voted to acquire the last working farm in Newton for use as a community-supported agriculture farm. This included restriction on the use of 1.5 acres for open space and active farming, preservation and rehabilitation of the historic farmhouse as affordable housing for the farm manager. In 2010 addition funding was approved to preserve and rehabilitate the historic barn to support farm operations and programs.

The City of Newton oversees the farm in conjunction with the Newton Farm Commission.

Under a license from the City, a nonprofit, membership organization runs the farm's community-supported agriculture and other programs. No City funds are used for maintenance, staffing, or farm programs.
