GTC EATS! is our Farm Share Program (also known as a CSA – Community Supported Agriculture) which brings healthy, fresh food to families in Mason Square and surrounding neighborhoods.

GTC EATS! members register for a weekly share of fresh, local, organic vegetables which are grown at Next Barn Over Farm in Hadley, MA. This is one of many ways we continue to build connections between farmers, families and access to local, healthy, affordable food.

Share prices: Primus Mason Family Share, vegetables: $20-$30/week, depending on income

Hoop City Half-Share, vegetables: $10-$20/week, depending on income

Keep in mind that harvest times are a little different every year. It’s always a good idea to call ahead to find out what’s available for picking.
