Eastie Farm wants to bring fresh local food to you! We are partnering with Massachusetts farmers to provide fresh foods for 16 weeks from the middle of June until the end of September. Every week, you will receive a bundle with the products of the most recent harvest: vegetables, fruits, herbs, and eggs. You can pick up our food Tuesdays from our garden site at 294 Sumner St. The cost of the program is $30 per week:
For SNAP recipients, we suggest the World Farmers CSA as an alternative that can allow you to spend your aid money on sustainable produce.
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community-Supported Agriculture. For growers, a CSA serves as an alternative to farmers’ markets – a way to connect them to customers so they can deliver their products at the peak of their freshness.
Why use a CSA?
- Reduce food miles and carbon emissions
- Support local farmers and Eastie Farm programs
- Eat healthy produce at the peak of freshness
What products will I receive?
The produce you get each week is dependent on what our partner farms are harvesting – the specifics will vary, but it will always be a combination of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and eggs. You can expect to receive spring greens or other early bloomers in the spring and pumpkins and other late crops in the fall, but each week will have surprises in store. If you ever receive something you don’t know how to cook, let us know! We will be adding easy recipes to our site all throughout the season to help you make sure you get the most out of your produce.
Greens – Bok Choy, Mizuna, Salad Mix, Spinach, Swiss Chard, Tatsoi
Fruits, Herbs, and More
