NOFA-VT Farm Share Program

The 2019 Fall/Winter application is now available! Applications will be accepted until September 30, 2019.

The Farm Share Program provides limited-income Vermonters with the opportunity to support their local CSA farmer and receive reliable access to high-quality produce on weekly basis through an innovative cost-share model. Each year, the Farm Share Program assists hundreds of individuals and families in accessing a season's worth of fresh farm products by partially subsidizing the cost of shares.

Drawing on NOFA-VT’s long history working with farmers committed to community food production, we established the program as a way to link food producers with limited-income Vermonters. The program began in 1995 as a response to the increase in food insecure children and adults in Vermont, as well as the recognition of the gap that exists between social service providers seeking food for limited-income individuals, and farmers seeking a local market for their food. The program has grown from serving a dozen individual families and three farms in 1995 to more than 600 Vermonters and 30 farms in 2018.
