It was snowing lightly as we pulled into the parking lot. The lovely white-on-white scenes cried out to be photographed. That morning I had left home without my camera, never expecting to make this trip, so I had to take these photos with my iPhone.
The light that day was poor, and changing; in my photo editor I was hard pressed to match all the whites from frame to frame. I tried black-and-white, but the images looked flat; color was needed to give the white scenes life.
After a long, storied history, Codman Community Farms was purchased by the Town of Lincoln, and adapted as a "nonprofit agricultural enterprise," one devoted to sustainable farming methods. It is home to the famous Codman Community Gardens. Before Covid, it also hosted the Lincoln Farmers’ Market.
Codman is a functioning farm, selling some of its meat, eggs and produce from its own "Farm Store," which is open 24/7. The store operates on a self-serve and honor basis.
This site is especially beautiful in spring and summer, as manifest in my earlier projects, Codman II and Codman. The Town of Lincoln is an affluent suburb of Boston, lying just northwest of Waltham.
