Massaro Community Farm MelonHeads

Rock to Rock 2020 - Celebrating the 50th Earth Day

                Already 1,548 miles towards our 2,000 mile goal! 

                     Keep farming. Feed people. Build community. 

Massaro Community Farm is a nonprofit organic vegetable farm serving Greater New Haven and the Lower Naugatuck Valley. We cultivate vegetables, herbs, flowers and honey for our seasonal CSA subscribers, farmerā€™s markets and restaurants. The farm donates at least 10% - anywhere between 6,000-10,000lbs - to hunger relief. Our farm is also a destination location, with a 1-mile Nature Trail and education opportunities for all ages.


Everyone needs nourishment, to be inspired, and to be part of a caring community. In these troubling times, Massaro Community Farm remains a natural refuge. It is also a place of innovation and actionIn response to the outbreak of Covid-19, the farm is collaborating with other farms to offer products for pre-order and weekly pickup by community members. 

Local farms are a valuable resource when major supply chains are disrupted and large grocery store shelves are empty.  Massaro Community Farm maintains its commitment to donate at least 10% of what it grows to hunger relief. And we know the demand will be even higher in 2020 for families already subsisting on the margins.

The MelonHead's revised Rock to Rock (R2R) Earth Day Ride: 

The Massaro MelonHeads team invites you to support its Virtual Team Relay. During April 2020, individual team members will get outdoors to walk, cycle, run, or hike a total of 2,000 miles. Support our efforts to continue feeding those in need by making a pledge today. Making that pledge NOW [click on the green  "SUPPORT US"  button above], allows us to take advantage of key matching dollars during this annual campaign.    

Make a pledge and to the farm and you will directly support:

  • a network of local food suppliers;
  • thousands of pounds of fresh produce donated annual to local hunger relief ( 65,000 pounds since 2010);
  • the protection of 57 acres of prime farmland; and
  • 10-15 jobs in your local economy. 

Check out this flyover of the farm. 

                   

             Thank you! (Your donation is tax-deductible)
