Feeling low of your daily intake of veggies? No worries! UMass's Stockbridge School of Agriculture offers its own CSA student farmshare. This program is offered to UMass students and faculty alike, and those who sign up get ten weeks of fresh grown vegetables for an extremely discounted price.
The farmshare lasts ten weeks and starts around the beginning of fall. The food can be picked up on Goodell Lawn every Friday from 12-4 p.m. This big window allowed my roommates and I to always coordinate a plan on who should pick up the vegetables. They even provide you with reusable bags in order to pick up your produce. Produce ranges from onions, leeks, sweet potatoes, to even butternut squash!
Signing up for the Stockbridge Student Farm CSA was truly one of the best decisions I have ever made living off campus. Now that I have access to a full kitchen, the cooking possibilities are nearly endless! The plethora of vegetables allows us to be creative in cooking meals, and we have even frequently begun making large quantities of soup!
