Farm Share Spotlight: Thy Neighbors Farm

Thy Neighbors Farm

Thy Neighbors Farm in Torrington 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.

Thy Neighbors Farm’s mission is to produce as much food as possible, and to have everything they grow go toward local food insecure families and the homeless population. They accomplish this by partnering with other people and organizations who pay for the produce so they can focus on growing, harvesting, and delivering weekly to Torrington Soup Kitchen, Friendly Hands Food Bank (over 6000 clients in the NWCT region), and Friends In Service to Humanity Northwest CT Homeless Shelter and Food Pantry (FISH NWCT). Instead of distributing individual CSA shares to each family, they provide individually packaged produce in wholesale volumes which these community partners then distribute. Each week, they deliver hundreds of bags of washed mixed lettuce, packs of cucumbers, bunches of carrots, bags of spinach, packs of summer squash, tomatoes, peppers, etc. Each week the food insecure families receive their fresh locally grown produce along with the rest of the groceries they are receiving from the food banks.

Want to support them in their mission to alleviate food insecurity? You can donate to their fund here.
