New Entry Food Hub

   Local food. Strong communities.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and Food Access Programs

 

Purchasing a New Entry CSA share helps support the training and technical assistance to successfully prepare the next generation of farmers in Massachusetts. Additionally, share revenues provide much-needed income to local farmers and help fund the food access work performed by our staff. Please order here to purchase your local CSA share today and make a private donation to our efforts to increase food access and security in communities across Eastern Massachusetts!


Members will receive one box of vegetables and fruit averaging between 5-20 pounds each week, beginning in June and running through October or early November, depending on the weather (20 weeks total). Members can expect the box to be slightly lighter with more leafy greens at the beginning of the season, and heavier at the end of the season as the summer and fall fruiting crops arrive. Occasionally heavier items like melons and winter squash will not fit inside the box and will be included for pick-up next to the boxes.  We suggest one share is enough for an individual or couple and two shares are appropriate for a larger family.  SNAP benefits are also a payment option for shares. If interested in this option please contact Cyrena at cyrena.thibodeau@tufts.edu. Our shares also include seasonal fruit from local orchards!

Mission

 The New Entry Food Hub aims to build long-term economic self-reliance and food security among farmers in eastern Massachusetts and their communities and to expand access o
f healthy and culturally appropriate foods in under-served areas through production of locally grown foods.

About Us

New Entry’s Food Hub program was created to provide technical assistance in crop planning, harvest and post-harvest handling, invoicing, and other farm marketing logistics to early-stage producers.  New Entry’s CSA and food access programs are coordinated by the Food Hub program and support new and beginning farmers in wholesale and retail marketing, by providing an opportunity to sell wholesale and continue to receive training and feedback on crop quality, packaging, crop forecasting, and customer communications while preparing them to enter other, more traditional markets in the future.
