North Amherst Community Farm
The land trust that owns the land we farm. In a tremendous community effort, NACF has preserved this farmland from development, and has leased it to Simple Gifts Farm. We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with this spirited and capable group of people. They are still raising money to the farm purchase
