About Us
Since we think agriculture is such an important part of our community, as farmers we seek to be integral and active members of our community. We feel that Community Supported Agriculture helps build community around the fundamental act of eating. We also seek to organize our farm in such a way that we can support low income people and help make local organic food available to everyone.

Annually we donate over $90,000 worth of produce to food relief organizations, like the Food Bank of Western Mass, Lovin’ Spoonfuls, and Food for Free, in the Boston and Western MA areas.

In addition to our plowing and planting work we also make time to reach out and participate in our broader community. We frequently give agriculturally related presentations at schools, conferences, churches and community events. Ryan has also participated in the broader sustainable agriculture community as a board member of the non profit Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture (CISA), and also as a grant reviewer for the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture and Research and Education (SARE) group.
Practices
Red Fire Farm practices Certified Organic Farming and maintains certification with the Baystate Organic Certifiers which is an accredited certifier of the USDA Organic Certification program. Red Fire believes that organic certification helps to assure that we make good decisions about our farming practices. Red Fire seeks to meet and exceed not only the letter of the organic farming rules, but also the intent. As organic farmers we never use chemical fertilizers, chemical pesticides or genetically modified plants. Instead we rely on things like compost, crop rotation and cover crops to keep our land and crops healthy and productive.
