Give the Gift of a CSA and Shop with Meaning this Holiday Season!

With the holiday season upon us, it’s easy to become discouraged by the vast consumerism surrounding our communities and lose sight of the true meanings of generosity.  That’s why Fresh Start Farms is offering the option to share the gift of a CSA with your friends, family, or community members this season.  It’s unique. It’s practical.  And both the gift giver and receiver can feel good knowing they are supporting the local economy, the earth, and the refugee farmers.  Whether you are a loyal CSA member yourself, or are new to the experience, we make gifting a CSA easy.

  1. Email and let us know you are interested
  2. You can purchase a single or family share for the summer, autumn, or full season, with checks payable to ORIS/Fresh Start Farms
  3. We will mail you a beautiful gift-certificate to give, with the option of including a personalized message, as well as information about the refugees you’re supporting

About Fresh Start Farms NH

Fresh Start Farms is a collective of refugee and immigrant farmers who are participating in the New American Sustainable Agriculture Program. Our New American farmer entrepreneurs represent the Somali-Bantu, Bhutanese and Congolese communities, as well as other ethnic groups. These growers sell produce wholesale to restaurants, colleges and other organizations and businesses, at farmers’ markets and farm stands, and through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program (with pick up sites in the Greater Manchester and Greater Seacoast). Produce is grown with soil health, environmental well being, and consumer happiness in mind. Fresh Start Farms, located in Dunbarton & Bedford, New Hampshire, is a spray-free farm in which farmers use integrated pest management practices with culturally appropriate growing techniques. Fresh Start Farms is a project of the non-profit Organization for Refugee and Immigrant Success (ORIS), located in Manchester, New Hampshire. 100% of the profits from the farm go back to the New American farm entrepreneurs.
