We’re a local neighborhood CSA Farm providing organically grown vegetables from our fields in Amherst. We currently offer weekly summer shares from June until November and bi weekly winter shares from December until March.
We accept SNAP and are part of HIP!
Summer Shares (600$):
Our summer shares offer a wide variety of fruits and vegetables every week from the first week of June until mid-November. Salad greens and braising greens like lettuce, kale, chard, mesclun greens are available most weeks, along with roots like carrots, potatoes, and onions. Fruits like strawberries and raspberries are available in season, the same as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash. There are literally over 60 crops we offer so I won’t mention them all, but each share is meant for a family (2 adults and a couple of kids) or couples who cook and eat a lot of fresh food.
Pick up days are on Mondays and Thursdays from 4pm-6pm, and Saturdays from 9am-12 all at 132 Pelham Rd in Amherst, MA. You can come any day, and we are small enough that we can make special arrangements if you can’t make it on time. We harvest most of your share but there are also dozens of pick your own crops including herbs, flowers, fruit, peas, and beans.
We offer flexible payment plans so you don’t have to pay all at once and we also accept EBT/SNAP and are part of the HIP program which can pay for most if not all of your share. We sold out our shares in 2016 and 2017 so contact us early for 2018.
To sign up for the Summer share, simply send a check (write Summer in the memo line along with your email address) for at least 20$ to:Many Hands Farm Corps PO Box 278 Amherst, MA 01004
Winter Shares (250$ for new members):
Winter shares occur every other week on Saturday mornings from 9am-12 (arrangements can be made if you can’t come during the regular hours). The winter share includes 12-15 lbs of root vegetables typically made up of 2 lb potatoes, 2 lb onions, 2 lb sweet potatoes, 2 lb beets (or winter squash), and 2 lb carrots in every pick up. Shares also include a bag of spinach most weeks (depending on production) and 2-4 lbs of other winter storage crops like parsnips, rutabaga. cabbage, celeriac, kohlrabi, and others which will vary with each pick up. You also have the option to personalize your share by swapping out veggies you don’t want for something you do want if you come during the regular pick up hours. Pick ups are held at 89 North East St (google 87 North East St for accurate directions, otherwise you’ll end up in the middle or a hay field).
