Summer Entertainment and Education on the Farm

Enjoy farm fresh produce and eggs

Our vegetable CSA is almost sold out for this year, so sign up right away to enjoy a season of fresh, organic produce from the farm.  Weekly distribution begins in mid-June:  Full share – $695; Half share – $370; www.MassaroFarm.org/join-our-csa.

New this year is an Egg CSA:  get one dozen eggs per week for the full 20-week CSA season ($120) or for the 10-week flexible/half CSA season ($70).  Sign up online now and get a free dozen.  Available both on farm and for New Haven pickup.

If a weekly farm share is too much for you, you can still purchase some farm produce a la carte through our online store:  www.MassaroFarm.Square.Site.  Our store also offers local cheese, milk, eggs, buttermilk, mushrooms, pork and coffee, items generally not available with a CSA subscription.  We also have organic seedlings for all of you home gardeners: a dozen varieties of tomatoes; cucumbers; zucchini; yellow squash; winter squash; watermelon; peppers; eggplant; herbs.  And now we are offering our very own organic free-range eggs!

Summer entertainment

June 11, starting at 7pm, come to the farm for our Free Family Night.  Join us for animal visits, a self-guided nature hike, and a screening of “The Goonies.”  Movie starts at 8pm.  This event is free, but we do have a limited capacity, so please sign up on our website to reserve your spot.  Food available for purchase from Street and Savory Food Truck.

Join us for a night of country fun live on the farm!  Saturday, June 26th at 7pm the Mike Collins Band brings modern country music to life in this outdoor concert.  Tickets ($10-30 each) available on our website.  Food available for purchase from The Mason Jar Exchange Food Truck.  Bring blankets or low chairs for lawn seating.

Beekeeping workshop

The next class in our beekeeping series, conducted by the CT Beekeeper’s Association, will occur Saturday June 12 at 9am.  This is a live webinar but there may be a few in-person spots available; check our website for updates and to pre-register.

Special Farm Tour

In association with the New Haven Festival of Arts and Ideas, the farm will offer a farm tour titled “Imagining Your Food System,” examining the role small farms play in our food supply chain and how they harness the power to positively reverse effects of climate change.  Two dates:  June 21 and June 24 at 5:30 pm.  The program is free, but registration is required: https://www.artidea.org/.

Get involved in a Community Garden

The farm welcomes both new and experienced gardeners to help oversee vegetable gardens in Ansonia, Derby, Seymour, Oxford and Shelton.  Includes watering, weeding and harvesting.  We supply all the materials; you set your own schedule!  Take the produce home or add it to our donations for hunger relief partners.  Visit our site to sign up:  www.MassaroFarm.org/community-gardens.

Massaro Community Farm is a non-profit, certified organic community farm on 57 acres of land whose mission is to keep farming, feed people, and build community.  In addition to growing vegetables for seasonal subscribers, the farm donates thousands of pounds each year to hunger relief.  The farm serves as a hub of education for all ages and shares its space with the community.  The farm’s nature trail is open to the public 365 days a year.  For more information visit our website at www.MassaroFarm.org or contact Executive Director Caty Poole at 203-736-8618 or at caty@massarofarm.org.
