Chris' Farm Stand was started by Chris Stasinos in 1970, at the tender age of 9. He caught the corn bug by growing corn naturally on his grandfather's pig farm, filling his wagon, bringing it to the roads edge.
He is a third generation sustainable farmer who's won many ribbons at the Topsfield Fair. The Farm stand has grown over time and is still a family run business with the fourth generation of Stasinos farmers getting ready to take the reigns. This local farm grows a wide variety of fresh vegetables, fruit, natural honey, poultry, turkey, and eggs.
We use naturally, sustainable agriculture methods to grow our famous sweet corn, awesome tomatoes and beautiful pumpkins. We also grow a wide variety of healthy fresh vegetables that are picked daily. There are 2 farm stand locations and we can also be found at 3 local farmers markets. Please support your local farmers by vistiing us at Haverhill's Farmers Market, Middlton's Farmers Market, or the Melrose Sally Frank's Farmers Market.
Last year we had expanded the farm to include round and square bales of local hay for delivery or pick up. We're also working in cooperation with other local farmers to incorporate a Bee Keeper for local harvested honey, as well as fresh whole grains!
At our annual October Pumpkin Festival, we take great pride in educating children and their families on the importance of growing food locally using sustainable agriculture practices.
Farm tours are available by appointment. We have done several tours for local area schools as well as the Boyscouts, Girlscouts, Garden Club and Daisies. Please ask us for more information in setting one of these tours up.
We grow our crops and hold our annual Pumpkin Festival at 200 year old Silsby Farm.
