Organic Farm Share

Never thought you could get delicious local food in the bitterly cold depths of winter in Cambridge?  Think again.  For the first time ever, Red Fire Farm, an awesome organic farm in Western Massachusetts, is offering a bi-weekly "Deep Winter" farm share consisting ofstorage crops (1/3 of the value), greens (another 1/3), and local products (the last 1/3).   Although the season has already begun, there are still a few slots available and the Farm will pro-rate the cost if you're interested ($40 per week). One share can easily feed 2-3 people.  There are four more deliveries for the season.  Sign up by February 11th to join in time for the February 12th delivery.  Pick-up is at Metro Pedal Power in Somerville (25 minute walk, 10 minute bike ride, 5 minute bus ride on the 86 from campus) on Friday afternoons.  Or for an extra $5 per delivery, you can even have your share bicycle-delivered to your doorstep.  So far, we've received a variety of yummy veggies as well as apples, cheese, sauerkraut, blueberry spread, and more.  

For more information, check out or call the farmers at (413) 467- SOIL.
