New Lands Farm is a vibrant community of refugee and immigrant farmers improving the health of their families and communities through small-scale sustainable agriculture. Farmers gain access to land and collective marketing opportunities through the program, as well as accessible training and technical assistance to improve their farming and marketing skills. Farmers earn supplemental income through empowered self-employment, honor their agricultural roots and food traditions, and contribute in a meaningful way to their new community and the local food system.
We welcome you to join the farmers in their work for equity and diverse representation in the food system.

Special Announcement—Market & Program Direction
In reflecting on the values and mission of the farm, we have decided to re-direct energies which had been used for the CSA towards additional farmers’ markets in the farmers’ neighborhoods. This move will allow the farm to provide more wholesome, international produce to the local refugee and immigrant populations as well as other community members, many who would not otherwise have the option to purchase local/organic produce for their traditional meals.
Farmers’ markets also afford the program more teaching opportunities. It is our hope that in the future, as farmers develop their marketing and customer service skills, they will be able to resume the CSA with a greater degree of independence than previously. In the interim, staff will be working with farmers where they are to deepen the skills they need to run successful farm microenterprises.
We are thankful for the community support we have received through the CSA and otherwise, and invite you to stay or become involved
in this next chapter of our journey. Former CSA members are welcome to read our full CSA announcement,
which includes suggestions of other local CSA programs.
