Our Story

Warner Farm is one of the oldest and longest running family farms in New England. Ten generations of Warners have farmed here in Sunderland since the 1720’s. Father and son Mike and David Wissemann continue that legacy by growing a wide range of crops on 150 acres of fertile river valley soil, offering CSA shares and wholesale produce throughout Massachusetts.

The Warner’s, originally from England, migrated to America in the 1620s and settled in Sunderland (then called Swampfield) in the 1720s.

As a 10th generation family farm, we understand the importance of growing practices that nourish the soil and that promote the health and biodiversity of the land we farm, and the surrounding area. We have been feeding our community the freshest, healthiest, and purest produce for over 250 years, and we have protected that legacy by preserving 70 acres through the Massachusetts Agricutural Preservation Restriction Program.
