Farm Share Spotlight: Massaro Community Farm

Massaro Community Farm

Massaro Community Farm in Woodbridge is participating in CT NOFA’s Farm Share Program, which provides reduced cost Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares – also known as farm shares – to Connecticut residents in need of financial assistance.

Massaro Community Farm is a Certified Organic, 501(c)3 non-profit farm in Woodbridge, CT, just outside of New Haven. Their mission: keep farming, feed people, build community. They grow mixed vegetables, flowers and eggs for CSA, markets, and restaurants in the Greater New Haven and Naugatuck Valley area. They are committed to donating at least 10% of their annual harvest to local hunger relief organizations and offer on-farm educational programs and events throughout the year.

They offer Sliding Scale Pricing for their CSA, which engages the community in Community Supported Agriculture, allowing them to practice economic solidarity and providing mutual support for the cost of their programs. In this way, they make their produce more accessible and help cover costs of operation.

Their CSA runs from mid-June to late October. Pickup at Massaro on your choice of Tuesdays between 2:30-6:30pm or Fridays, between 12:30-5:30pm. Includes any “U-Pick” crops, if available. You can switch your pickup day during the season if needed – they request a one week notice. With your CSA you have the option to add on eggs each week from their flock of hens, and to add fruit from High Hill Orchard (fruit option is 15 weeks only, July to October).

If you are a Connecticut resident who is interested in a reduced cost CSA share from Massaro Community Farm, visit their website to apply for a share.

Don’t need a discounted CSA but would like to support them in providing discounted CSA shares to those in need? You can donate to their fund here.
