Community Produce Program
In 2021, deliveries ran from mid-July through October, with produce purchased from Olsen Farm, Holiday Brook Farm, Windy Ridge Organics, Mycoterra Farm and other local farms and farm stands.
In 2022 Community Produce Program was fully funded by a grant through AARP, allowing us to provide fresh fruits & veggies to 24 households for 17 weeks. The Lanesborough Ambulance Crew volunteered to help with deliveries each week, furthering community connections and providing wellness checks to our senior families.
Please read the Berkshire Eagle article from November 1st, 2022 about our program here.
Our long-term goal for Community Produce Program is to expand into towns across Berkshire County, helping support local farms and providing fresh foods directly to local homes.

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!
