To increase food accessibility to low-income families, we have partnered with NOFA’s Vermont Farm Share Program. Through this program, we are able to subsidize CSA shares for low-income families throughout our community. Here is how it works: For every dollar Good Heart Farmstead raises, NOFA-VT will match us, and the result allows us to offer CSA shares at 50% off to income-eligible Vermonters.
The table below shows income eligibility based on household size and income per week, month, and year.
