Free Produce Program 

In 2020 we launched a pilot of our Free Produce Program- providing free, fresh produce, grown on the farm, to senior residents in Lanesborough through weekly delivery and no-contact distribution. The program was funded by a grant through EforAll Berkshire County, as well as on-line fundraising of farm products.
Community members reached out and offered to donate ‘extra’ produce from their home gardens as well, turning our program into a community organized event each week! This summer we distributed nearly $2400 of fresh produce, at no cost, to senior residents in Lanesborough. 
We plan to expand Free Produce Program in 2021 in order to provide even more free, fresh foods to seniors and families in need- both in Lanesborough and neighboring towns. 
If you would like to make a donation toward covering the cost of free, fresh produce for the 2021 season- please click the link below!

“This program was a wonderful way to reach out to the community in so many ways. It not only provided local fresh produce to seniors but it was a vehicle for community involvement at a time when people were looking for a way to stay connected and help their neighbors. Kudos to Kristen & Chris for not only identifying a need but for finding an innovative solution.”

“This program was great. When I got my veggies on Tuesdays I would plan my dinner around it. Great produce, great people! Thank you.”
