North Amherst Community Farm (NACF) is a local non-profit devoted to preserving farmland and promoting sustainable farming practices.
Help us raise $10,000 today through Valley Gives!
In 2006 NACF purchased a lovely 35 acre farm stretching from N. Pleasant St. out to a large field on Pine St. The farm is leased to Simple Gifts Farm (SGF), which operates an organic CSA, producing tons of produce for hundreds of local families.
The farm itself is beautiful open space in the heart of our community. The farm paths are open for all in the community to wander and enjoy the scenery and observe a hard working farm through the changing seasons.
NACF's current capital campaign is finishing the job of paying for the farm. Out of the original $1.2 million price for the farm, we have only $200,000 left to go. The goal is very much within sight!
You can help today by donating $10, $25, $100, or more! to help us reach our $10K target for today.
NACF will be a community owned resource for generations to come, managed over the long-term by a succession of farmers with long term affordable leases, and committed to sustainable practices.
SGF, the first lessees, have improved the farm greatly by constructing a well and irrigation system, refurbishing the CSA barn, installing PV panels and solar hot water heating for their greenhouses, and building soil fertility through their small scale livestock program.
