About Song Sparrow Farm

Song Sparrow Farm is on a mission to make nutrient dense food more accessible to the communities we serve. Our 1.5 combined acres of market gardens in Easthampton and Florence will produce veggies and herbs that are turned into pickles, veggie sides, prepared food, baked goods, and herbal teas available at several farmers markets and farm stands in Western Mass. We are committed to growing practices and techniques that build healthy living soil, sequester carbon, and build resilience. That means we don’t till, and we rotate planting, plant cover crops, and save seeds.

2024 is the third season for the Song Sparrow crew, which had a tough 2023 after a flood devastated our crops in Florence. Despite the tough losses, we pivoted to develop Song Sparrow Kitchen, a project which blossomed because of the support we received from a collection of farmers, herbalists, and food producers in our amazing community.

Song Sparrow Farm is owned and operated by Toni Hall, who views growing food as an act of resilience and resistance. They grew up in a garden, making music. They learned how to farm, how to be an educator, and how to get large quantities of food to food insecure communities. They lease farm land, work-trade for kitchen access, and run this business to grow community and plants, hoping that both will act as medicine. Song Sparrow’s crew is queer and full of cheer. We share food, laugh a lot, and always make time to pet and play with one very sweet little farm dog named Dandy Lion.
