Farm help onhand


Your Backyard Farm, a new business, provides help to Islanders who want to have a farm but might be intimidated by the amount of knowledge it takes, who are unable to care for animals in the winter, or who are on-Island for a short amount of time, according to a press release.

Proprietor Rebecca Brown said “Your Backyard Farm” is now offering livestock rental and care, vegetable garden installation and maintenance, as well as land restoration including invasive plant and brush control using sheep and goats and soil fertility management. Ms. Brown was born and raised on a farm in Edgartown and is an experienced farmer and soil consultant. For more information go to or call 774-521-6100.
