Small Business Spotlight: Natick Community Organic Farm

With Lynda Simkins, NCOF Executive Director, and Trish Umbrell, NCOF Farm Administrator.

With Lynda Simkins, NCOF Executive Director, and Trish Umbrell, NCOF Farm Administrator.

Had a great time visiting the Natick Community Organic Farm (NCOF) and meeting Lynda Simkins, Executive Director, and Trish Umbrell, Farm Administrator.

For almost four decades, NCOF has been a rich center of community life in Natick and a source of inspiration for locally based organic farms across the Commonwealth and the country. Founded in 1975, NCOF has been committed to farming healthy and sustainable goods, priding themselves on “humane animal care, sustainability in lifestyle, and living in an environmentally friendly manner.”

The farm is also heavily involved in education through youth services and classes, camps, work programs and volunteer opportunities for local area students, who learn the importance of supporting local farms and organic agriculture.

The farm is open every day, and you can visit the animals, or just take a walk around their beautiful property. For more information on the Natick Community Organic Farm please visit http://www.natickfarm.org/.

If you would like your business to be a part of the Small Business Spotlight or would like to nominate a small business, email Senator Ross at richard.ross@masenate.gov.

Senator Ross Has Perfect Attendance Record in Senate

September 12, 2014

Boston – Senator Richard Ross was recently recognized by Beacon Hill Roll Call for his 100% attendance record in the Massachusetts Senate in 2014. This marks the third year in a row Senator Ross has received a perfect attendance record.

“It is my distinct honor and privilege to serve the people of the Norfolk, Bristol and Middlesex District, and I take my responsibilities very seriously” said Senator Ross.

Previous to serving in the Senate, Ross was a member of the House of Representatives for three terms. During that time, he never missed a vote, earning perfect attendance five years in a row.

“I pride myself on my dedication to my constituents, who desire real meaningful action from their legislature on a daily basis. I can assure them that I will continue to show up for each and every vote and perform the duty I was elected to do,” said Senator Ross.

In 2011 Senator Ross missed one roll call vote, due to emergency surgery to repair torn muscles in his left leg.

Please contact the office of Senator Ross with any questions or concerns at (617) 722-1555 or Richard.Ross@masenate.gov.
