Family Fun

You are welcome to come walk the land at any time. There is a trail easement held by the Franklin Land Trust and created by the previous owners of the farm, Dave Gott and Ted Watt, that allows anyone to come and walk the farm roads.  Please park at the barn or on the road and stay on the farm roads.  Leashed dogs are also welcome as long as they also stay out of the fields.  In the winter, feel free to come cross- country skiing or snowshoeing. For more information feel free to call us: 413-337-5340.

Community Supported Agriculture

The Benson Place will continue to offer berry pickup locations in Greenfield, Amherst, Northampton, and Conway this year.  And after offering a pickup at Natural Roots for two years now, we’re happy to be also offering pickups at both Brookfield Farm and Simple Gifts Farm this year.  If you think your CSA may be interested please have them contact us and we may be able to arrange a pickup for the 2019 season.

Put on some clothing you don’t mind getting a little dirt on and spend an afternoon with family and friends discovering the local farms that grow our food. 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.
