Down to Earth is a grassroots foundation for the development of sustainable local food systems through organic educational farming.

We are a vegetable farm and CSA in the process of receiving non-profit status.
CSA: vegetable, egg, chicken, beef, bread & fruit shares in collaboration with other farms in the area. We are offering 15 full shares this season. Stafford farmers market

We offer a variety of educational, farm & garden skills and environmental workshops and programs. Weíre beginning to work with Staffordís schools to develop curriculum to reconnect kids with how their food grows, using both in-class and on-farm learning. We are in the process of building an online listing of area producers and products, so people can find out what we have locally and where to get it.

We are in the process of signing the Farmerís Pledge and are deeply committed to growing organically.

Thanks to Northeast Organic Farming Association for help in compiling these listings.
