About Wilson Farm

Founded by Irish immigrants, Wilson Farm has been in operation at its present location since 1884. JamesAlexander WilsonW.M. Wilson, and brother-in-law George Reynolds came to Lexington, MA from Enniskillen, Ireland.   They were able to buy 16 acres of land and rent some of the surrounding fields for farming. James A. Wilson was the salesman, and the other partners worked the farm, growing vegetable crops and plants. Included among them were: cabbagewhiteturnipcelerycarrots, and beets.

Over time, and with the addition of other family members to the team, the farm has expanded from 16 acres to 33 acres in Lexington; and to an additional 500 acres in Litchfield, New Hampshire.  They operate the land using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques which helps to control insects, pests and diseases on crops by combining several complementary strategies. These include sanitation, soil enrichment, variety selection, pest detection, and biological controls. Chemical pesticides may be used, but only as a last resort, and only if absolutely necessary.
