About

Underline Farm is situated on thirty acres of land in the hilltowns of western Massachusetts. We are devoted to building soil, supporting thriving ecosystems, and feeding our community well. That means healthy animals raised on diverse pastures and organic grains. Our processes are influenced by the principles of permaculture and holistic management along with several years of experience working on diversified farms.

This steep and rocky land is poorly suited for growing vegetables on any marketable scale, but it is perfect for feeding a variety of livestock who turn those rugged plants into nutrient-dense meat and eggs. With short grazing periods and long recovery times, the land thanks us with increasingly productive and biodiverse pastures. We take our stewardship jobs seriously and are honored to tend the land and animals in a way that creates so much abundance.

Community Supported Agriculture

Shares are a popular way for farms to pre-sell their products to customers. This way, the farmer is buoyed by funds coming in before harvests are made and the shareholders are guaranteed a helping of the year’s bounty.

We have modeled our shares in a way that allows for flexibility and ease. The standard 6-month box subscription offered by other farms can be a daunting commitment and investment to some, so we offer the option to reserve boxes individually. We also sell credit for the farm, with discounts available when purchasing in higher amounts. This credit can be redeemed at the customer’s convenience on any items we have in stock.

Boxes can be bought singly as a sampler or gift, or purchased for several months to ensure a steady supply of our pastured meats (beef, pork, chicken). There are two size options available. The small monthly box costs $80 and contains about 10-12lbs of meat, while the large box is $160 and contains about 20-22lbs.

Purchase a 6-month subscription and save $50 for small shares and $75 for large.

We are always happy to share cooking tips for the cuts included in your share.

Boxes can be picked up on the farm or at one of our farmers’ markets.

Local delivery may be possible, as well.

Please email us at underlinefarm@gmail.com to create a share that suits your needs.

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.
