North of Boston is a family farm in Boxford, Massachusetts. Its name is a nod to Robert Frost’s 1914 book of the same title.

North of Boston leverages nearly 350 years of family farming experience to grow and raise the highest quality food. From heritage-breed pork and beef, to some of the finest tasting heirloom vegetables and fruits, we work hard every day to provide compelling and delicious food. Additionally, we work to broaden our offerings by sourcing from local farmers and cooperatives we know and trust—some of whom have been farming alongside our family for over three centuries.

Our guarantee is simple: If our food isn’t the best you’ve ever had, simply let us know and we’ll make it right.

Concierge-Level Home Delivery

What does this mean? It means we tailor to your lifestyle. We custom pack your order and deliver it exactly as you specify. You’d like delivery to your workplace, your apartment on the 22nd floor, or to your boat slip? We can do that. You’d like your order unpacked in your kitchen or left under a shade tree in your back yard? We can do that. You’d like three baseball-sized beets, seven small gala apples, and the largest pork shoulder we have? We can do that too. With North of Boston, you’re not limited.

We’re not a third-party shipping service or cooperative. We’re not another app on your phone. We are a farm that provides exceptional food and exceptional service. Let us know how we can be remarkable.

Offering seasonal vegetables and fruits, pastured pork, grass-fed beef, organic chicken, fresh eggs & more.

Our Farmers

Justin Chase is a 12th-generation farmer. His favorite crops are those that epitomize the season in which they’re harvested: asparagus in spring; strawberries and rhubarb in early summer; tree fruits and raspberries later on, and then pork and apples, leeks and squash in the fall. But beets are his favorite of all, because they’re loaded with sugar and they taste of the particular soil in which they’re grown more than any other vegetable on Earth.
Justin advocates regularly for The Governor’s Food Policy Council and Massachusetts Food System Collaborative. Before founding North of Boston, Justin was a consultant for several states departments of agriculture and managed the farmer training program at Tufts University. He worked with his family on their historic farm in Newburyport and helped The National Farmers Union in Washington D.C. support farms throughout the country. Justin holds a BA in conservation biology, an MBA from Bentley University, and he’s an instructor for Cornell University and the United States Food & Drug Administration.
You can read more about Justin in the Bentley University Magazine.
