Located in historic Concord, MA, Saltbox Farm is Chef Ben Elliott’s home and a 10-acre working farm, supplying fresh ingredients for Saltbox Catering's clients and to Saltbox Kitchen, a café and brewery located in nearby West Concord.
Built in the 1940s, Saltbox Farm was owned by Chef Ben Elliott’s grandparents until 2004, when he and his wife Julia moved to the farm to continue the family tradition, raise their own young family and to restore the farm. The farm has special meaning to Chef Ben, and he is excited to share this amazing place with you and your guests.
WHAT WE GROW
Today on the farm we grow a wide variety of vegetables, raise sheep, keep chickens for eggs, bees for honey, grow hops for our own beer and have recently planted a small orchard that includes apples, peaches, pears and cherries. At Saltbox Farm, we use only organic and sustainable farming practices with no synthetic herbicides or pesticides.
events on the farm
At the farm, we can host up to 14 guests for a private cooking class in our intimate, rustic farmhouse, home to The Cooking School at Saltbox Farm. Private cooking classes are perfect for small gatherings such as birthdays, bachelorette parties, or corporate team-building events.
For larger groups, we can accommodate a variety of events outside in the fields of our working farm, a singular experience in a one-of-a-kind setting. Imagine long family-style tables set up between the rows of grapes, or in the shadows of the hop yard. Table settings could include just-picked flowers alongside dishes that include food grown right at the farm paired with beer made from Saltbox Farm hops.
