Innovative farming: Simple Gifts Farm offers year-round nutritious and organic produce
Simple Gifts Farm is located in Amherst, MA. Below, the team shares some details on their business and the importance of supporting local.
Describe your business:
We are an organic farm and store located on community-owned land less than a mile from UMass Amherst. We grow organic vegetables year-round in an integrated crop and livestock system that enhances our soil and positive environmental impact. Guests are welcome to walk through the farm and enjoy our beautiful property. We are open for online ordering, porch side pickup, and in-person shopping seven days a week.
What makes your business unique?
We are innovators in organic no-till cropping, which sequesters carbon, builds healthy soil, and results in more nutritious produce! Our farm is a beautiful oasis in North Amherst, where people can see our crops and livestock. We provide organic produce and other gems from the local food system year-round.
Why is it important to support businesses like yours?
We are keeping an important property in active farming that is open to the community and improves our environment. Our short supply chain allowed us to keep supplying food during the height of the pandemic, and we need your support to keep this effort alive.
How has your business changed or adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic?
We have implemented an online ordering and porch side pickup program. We were able to provide food to our community during the worst of the pandemic period when other outlets experienced many shortages.
