Many Hands Farm Corps is a CSA providing organically grown vegetables at Amethyst Farm in Amherst. We currently offer weekly summer shares from June until November and bi-weekly winter shares from December until March.
EBT/SNAP is accepted and flexible payment plans are available.
Summer shares offer a wide variety of fruits and vegetables every week from the first week of June until mid-November. Salad greens and braising greens like lettuce, kale, chard, mesclun greens are available most weeks, along with roots like carrots, potatoes, and onions. Fruits like strawberries and raspberries are available in season, the same as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash. Each share is meant for a family (2 adults + a couple of kids) or couples who cook and eat a lot of fresh food.
Pick up days are on Mondays and Thursdays from 4pm-6pm, and Saturdays from 9am-12pm at 132 Pelham Rd in Amherst, MA. Special arrangements if you can’t make it on time. Most of your share will be harvested but there are also dozens of pick your own crops including herbs, flowers, fruit, peas, and beans.
Winter shares occur every other week on Saturday mornings from 9am-12pm (arrangements can be made if you can’t come during the regular hours).
The winter share includes 12-15lbs of root vegetables typically made up of 2lb potatoes, 2lb onions, 2lb sweet potatoes, 2lb beets (or winter squash), and 2lb carrots in every pick up. Shares also include a bag of spinach most weeks (depending on production) and 2-4lbs of other winter storage crops like parsnips, rutabaga. cabbage, celeriac, kohlrabi, and others which will vary with each pick up. You also have the option to personalize your share by swapping out veggies you don’t want for something you do want if you come during the regular pick up hours.
