Free Produce Program

In 2020 we launched a pilot of our Free Produce Program, providing free, fresh produce, grown on the farm, to senior residents in Lanesborough through weekly delivery and no-contact distribution. The program was funded by a grant through EforAll Berkshire County, as well as on-line fundraising of farm products. Last summer we distributed nearly $2400 of fresh produce, at no cost, to senior residents in Lanesborough!

This year, deliveries run from mid-July through October on Monday mornings, with produce from Olsen Farm and other local farms. We are delivering to Lanesborough, with plans to expand to neighboring towns in the coming years.

To get on the waitlist or to volunteer, please email  heartandsoilma@gmail.com. To contribute financially, check out our GoFundMe below!

This program was great. When I got my veggies on Tuesdays I would plan my dinner around it. Great produce, great people! Thank you.

This program was a wonderful way to reach out to the community in so many ways. It not only provided local fresh produce to seniors but it was a vehicle for community involvement at a time when people were looking for a way to stay connected and help their neighbors. Kudos to Kristen & Chris for not only identifying a need but for finding an innovative solution.

This is a great community service and Kristen deserves a lot of credit for getting it started. I hope it continues to grow and thrive!
