Local and Regional Partners
We benefit from working together! Check out the Good Stuff We Do and see below for more about our community partners.
Greenfield Community Farm/Just Roots
is a locally-owned agricultural non-profit dedicated to providing affordable local food to the Greenfield and greater Franklin County community through a variety of CSA distributions, in addition to providing regular agricultural education opportunities at the farm.
Common Wealth CSA has been offering shares since 1998, as a cooperative of several farms that distribute in the walkway next to Green Fields Market. Our co-op saw the benefits of collaboration with the Common Wealth farms as a way of supporting small, local farmers.

Better World Travel Club a socially responsible auto club discounts to co-op members.
