NOFA-NH Farm Share Program
(Subsidized CSA)

Are you organic, certified, a member of NOFA-NH and have a CSA? We have a small grant for a new program throughout New Hampshire to provide subsidized CSA (community supported agriculture) shares for limited-income individuals and families.

The NOFA-NH Farm Share Program will be available to New Hampshire residents with limited income especially benefiting children, families and seniors.
If you are a certified organic farmer with a CSA program, it's not too late to become a member of NOFA-NH and take part in this opportunity. Please pass along this information to your certified friends and farmers.

We are looking for about five farms to provide one or two shares for the 2017 season. We hope to continue this program for the years to come.


Application deadline is April 30, 2017

Welcome Richard Polonsky!

We are pleased to announce our new Director of Development, Richard Polonsky. 

Richard was an early member of NOFA during its start-up days in Vermont when he was a commercial farmer in New Hampshire. His early exposure to Samuel Kayman inspired him to adopt organic methods in my own farming operations.

He has been an advocate for the poor, community organizer in the South, aide to a Congressman, Development Director for a Community Action Agency, and project manager for two universities. He has been a grant writer and fund raiser for a large human service organization, an environmental practice in the Northeast, and a collaboration between world renowned research institutions and science museums in New England. 

He raised millions of dollars and rose to leadership positions by helping organizations run better, become more entrepreneurial and responsive to the people they served. He helped them expand and diversify to meet the needs of the people they worked for.
