The Farmer’s Pantry CSA Share
Evolution and Innovation in Community Supported Agriculture
Here in the Valley we’ve been blessed with not only some of the best farmland in the world but some of the most dedicated and quality oriented farmers imaginable. This is next step in the evolution of Community Supported Agriculture, The Farmer’s Pantry Share will provide you with easy access to an array of the best farm made preserves anywhere! Simple, delicious, and all in one place!
Once the Grain CSA became an established an effective model for distributing the best grains, beans and flours around the next question was obvious. If this model works so well can we use it to make more opportunities available for a stronger local food system?
The answer was a simple solid yes and in 2016 The Farmer’s Pantry Share was born.
The Pantry Share is an annual distribution available in January/February every year along side the Grain Share distribution that focuses on making it easy to stock your pantry with the best fruit preserves, vinegars, mustards, dried mushrooms, seaweeds, salsas, hot sauces, Lacto-fermented veggies, and more all in one place and fully customizable to get exactly what you would like!
Distribution is in Western MA the last Saturday in January, the Boston area the first Saturday in February, and New York the Last Sunday in January!
