Agriculture

Our Farm to Your Table

We grow, you eat: it’s a simple arrangement. The farmers at Indian Line Farm plant, cultivate, harvest, wash and provide a bountiful selection of vegetables, fruit, flowers and herbs. You, the CSA member, buy a share of the anticipated harvest at the beginning of the season  and then pick it up from the farm in weekly increments. It’s the perfect symbiotic arrangement: we have the security of an advance commitment which helps us to plan our yields, and the funds to pay for it,  you have the satisfaction of seeing where your food is grown and knowing the integrity with which it is being raised. Together we become our own food chain.

Share Options

We offer a number of share packages to suit most needs, families, couples, single adults.

Full Season Produce Share: $675.00

GET INVOLVED

 

Indian Line Farm is proud to work with others to meet the needs of our community.  

Toward this goal, we encourage your participation in the following ways.  

 

Two Hours of Volunteer Time

We encourage members to work two hours at the farm a season.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know the farm and farmers.  We provide multiple times throughout the season to do this.  For example, every Wednesday from 8-12 we have Working Wednesdays and it is a great opportunity to make the farm weed free and meet other members.  We also have our Annual Garlic Harvest in late July and in the Fall we work together to plant the garlic.  As they say, many hands make light work.

 

Donate to the Indian Line Farm Fund

These funds go directly to Indian Line Farm and are not tax-deductible.  The fund provides both financial assistance to members who request it and extra produce to the People’s Pantry in Great Barrington.  See Commitment Form for making a donation or if you would like to purchase a whole share we will make sure it goes to the right person.

 

 

Donate Directly to Share the Bounty

Share the Bounty is a program of Berkshire Grown. Your tax-deductible donation to Berkshire Grown buys shares at Indian Line Farm which then are given to needy families  AND Indian Line Farm directly provides produce to the People’s Panty in Great Barrington. The pantry regularly serves 40-60 families per week.  The needs are great!  Include Indian Line Farm/Share the Bounty in the memo line of check and send to: Berkshire Grown, P.O. Box 983, Great Barrington, MA 01230.  Or make a donation online at www.berkshiregrown.org
