In 2006, unhealthy

Target Hunger: North Berkshires. Target Hunger was a partnership of people and organizations working to fight hunger, page
making it easier for all residents to access affordable, healthy foods.

As a part of their work in the Northern Berkshire community, Target Hunger initiated several work groups to catalyze new efforts and strengthen existing ones with the goal of strengthening food security and the local food system. In the fall of 2006, a group of Williams College students began researching the possibility of a new CSA operation. By 2007 a CSA Work Group, composed of interested community members and organization leaders, began meeting monthly. From the work of these more than 30 community members, a core group of individuals emerged who developed a model of connecting a farmer with a farm and providing support in starting the CSA.

In 2010, Michael Gallagher began farming in Clarksburg, MA, calling his farm Square Roots Farm. The Hoosac Harvest group is committed to subsidizing 20% of the shares at this CSA, which has now moved to land they purchased in Lanesborough.

In 2013, Sharon Wyrrick began Many Forks Farm in Clarksburg, MA and Hoosac Harvest subsidizes 20% of the CSA shares.

In 2014, Hoosac Harvest started subsidizing winter shares at Joy and John Primmers, Wildstone Farm in Pownal, VT. They serve northern Berksh
