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 especially benefits children, families, and seniors, and has partnered with 15 farms to provide 167 shares to 550+ community members since 2017.

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

Our 2022 Farm Share Program application window has closed. Please scroll down for more information on food access resources in New Hampshire.

We at NOFA-NH want everyone to have as much access to fresh, healthy, local, and organic food as possible.
