Square Roots Farm CSA

In 2010, Hoosac Harvest partnered with farmers Michael Gallagher and Ashley Amsden to establish Square Roots Farm. The farm operates on the community supported agriculture (CSA) model where the farmers offer “shares” to the public in exchange for fresh, seasonal produce each week throughout the growing season.

Many Forks Farm CSA

In 2012, farmer Sharon Wyrrick (and founding Hoosac Harvest member) started Many Forks Farm in Clarksburg, MA. In her second season, the farm became a CSA and Many Forks Farm became our second farm partner.

Wildstone Farm


In 2014, we started subsidizing winter CSA shares for northern Berkshire residents from Wildstone Farm in Pownal, VT. In 2015, we started subsidizing summer shares too.

Square Roots Farm, Many Forks Farm, and Wildstone Farm also sell their fresh produce at the North Adams Farmers Market.

Subsidized Shares

We raise funds to subsidize shares at Square Roots Farm, Many Forks Farm, and Wildstone Farm enabling low-income community members to participate fully. The subsidy takes the form of a no-interest loan at the beginning of each season, then up to 50% of the share cost may be forgiven, and the remaining cost of the share may be paid with federal SNAP (formerly Food Stamps) dollars.

Your donations go toward supporting the subsidized shares program.


Hoosac Harvest connects farmers, small food producers, and the community via Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food, the annual potluck dinner with farmers, the Seedling Swap, and the Edible Garden Tour.


Sharing the Abundance

Our gleaning program engages local volunteers who harvest and transport produce from farms and farmers markets to local food pantries and the Berkshire Food Project.
