About Us

Grow Food Northampton works in concrete ways to build a community that supports its farms and farmers and makes their products accessible to everyone who lives here. Grow Food Northampton: owns a 120-acre community farm that leases land to several private farmers practicing sustainable agriculture; manages a vibrant 290-plot organic community garden; operates a thriving downtown farmers’ market; educates over 1,000 students about local food on the farm and in the classroom annually; and manages food access initiatives that make local food affordable and accessible for hundreds of low-income households. Founded as a volunteer-driven non-profit in 2010 with a campaign to acquire the farm, Grow Food Northampton now serves the small city of Northampton and nearby communities with a staff of three full-time and three part-time employees.
