We're Rolling Up Our Sleeves and Getting to Work

In these rapidly changing and trying times, our work at Fresh Start Farms continues, and your support remains as paramount as ever.  If you are seeking tangible and significant ways to stand with your refugee neighbors, please consider signing up for a CSA share today, or promote the opportunity widely among your circle of friends and family.  CSA memberships are crucial to the success, sustainability and prosperity of the farmers’ businesses and provide important financial security and stability leading up to the growing season.  In addition to providing a familiar and appropriate source of income, CSA not only facilitates connections within and integration into the community; the farmers also become integral members of the community and the local food system as they nourish you- their neighbors- with fresh, tasty, and healthy food. 

For more information, visit freshstartfarmsnh.org, or we are happy to hear from you at freshstartfarmsnh@gmail.com or 603-296-0443 anytime!

CSA DELIVERED TO YOUR OFFICE!

In addition to established pick-up options at several farmers markets and farm stands throughout the greater Manchester area, we are happy to deliver a group of CSA shares to any workplace or other community gathering space. We are also happy to send you promotional materials, give a presentation, or set up a time to have an info and sign-up table.  Please contact us to arrange the details! 

What else we've been up to:

  • In our CSA workshop, the farmers learned about all of the results from the surveys you completed and tips on how to retain and attract customers.  We understand from your feedback that a lot of CSA members would prefer additional options to choose the produce in their CSA shares. If there is something in your share that you don't like, please feel free to ask your farmer to swap it for another item of equal value on the table, or communicate your preferences with them.
  • The New American Farmers Cooperative held their annual member meeting last Friday! At the meeting they reviewed their 2016 expenses, approved their 2017 budget, and democratically elected the 2017 Board of Directors. Bravo! The New American Farmers Cooperative is a multi-cultural, multi-faith, and multi-lingual group of farmers that developed a cooperative in order to achieve greater independence, sustainability and profitability of their farm businesses. The majority of the 2017 Fresh Start Farms CSA shares will be fulfilled by the New American Farmers Cooperative members.
