Here’s a little history about Red Wagon Farm. Our farm started in 2004 and we’ve sold our vegetables in a variety of ways over the years: at farmers’ markets, to local restaurants, at a farm stand, and to our CSA members. For the past few years, we’ve focused on growing vegetables for our 500+ CSA members. But we formerly had a very busy farm stand in Lafayette from 2004 to 2012. We’ve recently returned to Lafayette at the Thomas Open Space farm. So far this year we’ve been busy growing vegetables and distributing them to our CSA members. Now we’re ready to open our farm store!

We are requiring all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
