Mix and match to create your own share. Our farmers grow a variety of ancient & heritage wheat, popcorn, oatmeal, heirloom dry beans, corn, rye, and other small grains. A full share (~100 lbs, family) takes about the space of two bushel baskets, a half share (~50 lbs, solo/couple) is about the size of one bushel basket.
Visit our about page for a list of farm partners and a list of this season’s crops.
Grains are distributed to members at the annual distribution in January in either Amherst or the Boston area. Sign-ups are taken on a first come first serve basis, with sign-ups closing on Thanksgiving. Limited availability – Early sign ups recommended!
Whole grains can be stored in an average kitchen cupboard and will keep indefinitely – you don’t need any special storage. Freeze flour for long-term storage, and keep some in the fridge for weekly use. Grains can be cooked whole or fresh ground for flour. Home mills are popular with CSA members, and easy to use!
Each share includes ancient
and heritage varieties.

superior taste and nutrition.
Grains in whole berry form
with keep indefinitely.
