Colchester Neighborhood Farm (CNF) is a Baystate Certified Organic Farm, and also a National Bicentennial Farm. This designation means that Colchester Neighborhood Farm has been owned by the same family for the past 200 years. However, what makes CNF different and distinguished from other local CSA is that in January 2012, New England Village signed a lease to assume operation of Colchester Neighborhood Farm. New England Village programs serve adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities, including autism, Down Syndrome and sensory disabilities. Participants in New England Village day programs work for Colchester Neighborhood Farm. These men and women help to grow the vegetables we sell, receive a paycheck, and learn farming skills. We are a very unique farm.

We offer an tradition summer CSA share (full & half), a fall greens and roots share, and a 20 week egg share. We also have a retail farm stand, some pick your own veggies & flowers, and lots of wonderful farm animals for families to visit.

I joined last year and really enjoyed this. super fresh and great variety. People are really cool and can assist on how to use some of this stuff. Nice place to bring the kids. I ordered the small share and had plenty of fresh veg for a family of 4.

I've been a CSA member for two years now and am so pleased with my ability to provide affordable organic produce to my family. As a single mom of two boys, I find the produce in a half share is the perfect way to save money at the grocery store during the summer months. Overall, the produce through the CSA is less expensive and far times more fresh than what you will find in the grocery store. I also like knowing where it comes from and that I am also supporting New England Village and its mission. I consider this share a luxury I am able to afford. I will also be purchasing an egg share this year which is also priced below what you pay in the store for cage free (not organic) eggs. Many families have the misconception that farm shares are too pricey and they really aren't. The shares also force you to cook seasonally which is the best way to get in a full range of nutrients. This share is a win-win for everyone and the farm is a fun place to visit with kids of all ages-even teens!

This farm has been around awhile, but since the summer has been under new management, and it shows.I had not bought a CSA from them but whenever they had extra produce they were more than happy to sell it too me, they also have great organic eggs! In addition they are a family friendly farm where you can visit a donkey, some sheep and chickens.I definitely plan to purchase a CSA this coming season!
