We are proud to be farmers.  We love what we do and we love helping to facilitate the connection of agriculture and community.


Ginger Syrup is a delicious way to capture the freshness of our ginger and let the culinary adventures begin!  Add it to tea, ice cream, marinades, salad dressings, cocktails, pancakes, and more.  We have pioneered growing ginger and turmeric in the Northeast and are excited to offer this delicious, locally grown and made product.


Old Friends Farm is owned and operated by Missy Bahret and Casey Steinberg, and is located in Amherst, Massachusetts.  Missy and Casey have been friends since attending the University of Vermont (’98).  After working on many inspiring farms in the Northeast, they started Old Friends Farm.  The farm is in its 11th year.  Above is  (left to right): Mary Jean (Missy’s mom), Casey, Missy, Phillip (Missy’s husband), and Roland.
