Kitchen Garden Farm

Sunderland, MA

Kitchen Garden Farm is located in the heart of the Pioneer Valley, the prime agricultural region of Western Massachusetts. The farm consists of 50 acres of rich river bottom soil with fields on both sides of the Connecticut River, in Sunderland and Whately. The farm's home base is located on S. Silver Lane in the center of Sunderland, about five miles from UMASS Amherst.

Caroline and Tim started the farm in 2006 on 1 acre of rented land, and have expanded the farm greatly in recent years. All of the new land they have brought into cultivation had previously been farmed by conventional growers in the area. Kitchen Garden Farm is doing the important work of converting prime agricultural land in their community to Organic production. Caroline and Tim are committed to growing healthy soils by cultivating a wide range of biodiverse crops, improving crop rotation and cover cropping.
