NORTH AMHERST FARM CONTINUES TO SUPPLY LOCAL PRODUCE YEAR ROUND WITH UNIQUE WINTER/SPRING CSA & ONLINE ORDERING

Swartz Family Farm, (www.SwartzFarmAmherst.com) of North Amherst is continuing to offer openings for its WINTER/SPRING Farm Share CSA program. This 4th generation family farm has been engaged in year-round vegetable and herb production for the past 25 years, growing greens, vegetables, and culinary herbs in their four season, 100% pesticide free greenhouses. In addition, they network with numerous other local family farms to offer their Members a wide array of local produce, eggs, cheeses, breads, honey, and prepared foods.

Swartz Family Farm is one of only a few local CSA's that actually produce fresh greens, lettuce, salad mix, and herbs all winter long.
