New Lands Farm

New Lands Farm works to provide refugee and immigrant farmers with the tools and resources they need to access land and agricultural opportunities in Central and Western Massachusetts.  The program provides training and technical assistance to new and experienced growers in producing and selling familiar and ethnic vegetables at local farmers markets, grocery stores, and through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.  New Lands Farm empowers new Americans through agriculture projects to honor their food traditions, earn supplemental income, and contribute in a meaningful way to their new community and the local food system.

We offer:
  • Access to urban gardening sites and nearby farmland
  • Access to and assistance with obtaining seeds, gardening tools, and farm equipment
  • Financial planning and assistance with marketing and small farm business development
  • Extensive trainings and workshops on production strategies and techniques appropriate to the regional climate
  • A network of supportive partners, mentors, and experts in the field
