With your help we can continue our good work at Massaro Community Farm (MCF) which began as a non-profit in 2008. Since then, with a bare-bones staff, we have:
What’s special about this Rock to Rock ride in 2017?
1. This is the final event in our Centennial Celebration of the Massaro family’s purchase of the land. In 1916, Italian immigrants John and Mary Massaro bought 110 acres of land on Ford Road in Woodbridge and Ansonia and began farming. In 1995 the farm was abandonned and lay unattended for over a dozen years.

2. The Massaro bike team is going for a FOUR-PEAT - our team has been the top fundraiser for the past three years (out of about 25 environmental organizations each year)
We are recruiting riders and bike team supporters of all ages, stripes and sizes. Participants can use any bike they can find. You can go 8, 20, 40 or 63 miles depending on your legs.
Thanks to Nutcase in Portland, Oregon for the generous donation of helmets. See their awesome selection HERE
3. We need to raise funds to accomplish three major objectives in 2017:
a) Complete the design and construction of KEY farm infrastructure projects:
1) a welcome pavilion/ Learning Center, and, 2) an environmentally friendly parking area
b) Expand our educational offerings and support staff including funding to continue our FoodCorps nutrition educator, and,
c) Fund critically needed administrative assistant positions and establish funds to support key staff members and interns.
