THANKS TO ALL WHO BECAME SUSTAINING MEMBERS IN 2016
We encourage membership of the farm through a variety of levels of financial support. A member is someone who makes a financial contribution to support the organization’s activities. It also gives you the fulfillment of being part of this very worthwhile venture. It does not, however, entitle you to shares of produce. See below for information regarding produce subscriptions.
Each member receives our bi-weekly newsletter, and is entitled to attend the annual meeting and shall have “one vote in the election of Directors of the corporation, amendments to the Certificate of Incorporation and the By-laws of the corporation, the removal of Directors, the increase or decrease in the number of Directors, and on any other matter for which members are entitled to vote under the Connecticut Nonstock Corporation Law.”
As a 501(c)3 organization, you can be assured your membership dollars go directly to supporting continued farming on historic farmland, supplying nourishment to the food insecure in our area, and to our educational programming efforts for all ages. Suggested basic Membership is $50 and offer you the satisfaction of maintaining a valuable community asset. However, we accept Membership at any level, especially for students and seniors on a fixed income. Renew or become a member online or print and mail us this Membership Form. We thank you for your support!
Donations of any amount are welcome. Donations of any size and membership fees should be made payable to Massaro Community Farm, Inc. and directed to the attention of our treasurer, 41 Ford Road, Woodbridge, CT 06525.

Join Our CSA
Community Supported Agriculture or CSA, has become a very popular food system network over the past 20 years in America. It allows for individuals to support local farms by buying directly from the farmer. By buying a “share” or subscription at the farm, the consumer participates in the farming life by sharing the risk as well as the food with other members and receives a box of seasonal farm goods each week throughout the season.
To subscribe to a seasonal share of produce at Massaro Community Farm, join our CSA.
