    Located in Williamstown, this is one of the oldest CSA farms in Massachusetts. Alan Silverman is not only building this Web site, but is also a member. A CSA is Community Supported Agriculture, where the farm provides food direct to share holders in the area. This ensures the food is grown and consumed locally, while it is fresh, with a strong relationship existing between the farmer and the consumer.

    Founded by Linda Hemenway, CIS Instructor at Santa Rosa Junior College, and subsequently driven by students and Sonoma County Webmasters, this group is still active.
