NOFA-NH's Farm Share Program

NOFA-NH's Farm Share Program provides funds for limited-income New Hampshire residents to purchase certified organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares, also known as farm shares, at discounted prices across the state. The program has partnered with 15 farms to provide 117 shares to 375+ community members since 2017.

It especially benefits children, families, and seniors.

How It Works: NOFA-NH contributes 50% of funds toward each farm share, recipients contribute 25%, and farm partners donate the remaining 25%.

2022 FARM SHARE APPLICATION IS CLOSED

All of the available 2022 Farm Shares have been filled. If you were interested in a 2022 Farm Share but were unable to apply we encourage you to view the resources below. We also encourage you to apply in 2023 for this annual program. Information regarding the upcoming seasons will be posted in March of that year.

Further Resources

We know that food insecurity continues to be a growing concern for many people in New Hampshire. We at NOFA-NH want everyone to have as much access to fresh, healthy, local, and organic food as possible. Although our Farm Share Program continues to grow and serve more and more people each year, we acknowledge that there are limitations to our program and want to share resources, services, and programs that can increase access to local, fresh food for those facing food insecurity in our state.
