Strawberries are in season now at Nourse Farm and this week marked the first day of PYO (Pick-Your-Own) Strawberries.
Established in 1722, the 140-acre Nourse Farm is the 10th oldest continuously operating family business in the country. Over time, farm operations have varied from production for consumption to dairy farming to its current berry specialization. Currently the 8th and 9th generation of Westborough Nourses are directly involved with Nourse Farm and contribute to its operations in various ways. David Nourse owns the farm, while brother Jonathan Nourse operates it. Next generation contributors include Timothy Nourse, who manages the on-line presence, his wife Catherine, who leads community outreach, including on-farm nutrition education and food literacy sessions and siblings Karen and William Nourse who supplied most of the photos for the site.
