CT NOFA’s Farm Share Program reduces the cost of a local CSA (community supported agriculture) share for individuals in need of financial assistance, while ensuring farmers are fully paid. A CSA is a subscription (usually weekly) from a farm for a regular supply of farm-fresh veggies, dairy products, meats, bread, and more. Curious about this direct-to-consumer model?
Each February, CT NOFA holds our signature event, the Winter Conference, featuring the Bill Duesing Organic Living on the Earth Award, our annual meeting, and a keynote address. Also included are over 20 workshops on farming, seed saving, organic land care, community food security, social justice issues, and more. The conference also includes farmer circles – peer learning communities for farmers interested in discussing a particular topic in an informal, supportive environment.
CT NOFA features unique, in-depth and actionable resources for experienced farmers, farmers just starting out, and for gardeners of all backgrounds and skill levels. Resources include bespoke CT NOFA offerings and publications from our partners in Connecticut and beyond. Additionally, find the Organic Farm Stand, Digging in the Dirt and NOFA podcasts are available in one convenient location. Finally, CT NOFA members can post a free classified listing as a member benefit.
Memberships are available for individuals, farms, families and others committed to ensuring the growth and viability of organic agriculture, organic food, and organic land care in Connecticut.
