After combined decades of working on educational farms, in food systems and hospitality, we are starting Revival Road Farm! We will be leasing land from Phoenix Fruit Farm which is a truly gorgeous and inspiring location. Our 10 acres is nestled in Belchertown in the Pioneer Valley on Nipmuc land, a region with deep agricultural history and community.
We will steward a bio-intensive farm with specialty food crops, herbs and flowers. We will also keep bees, sell honey and add some micro/small livestock production over the years. We will have an artisanal water well on-site as well as a large greenhouse for seedling production and season extension.
We will market primarily to restaurants, caterers and specialty food outlets in the Boston area where we have deep relationships and explore other outlets across New England.
We plan to complement our Boston restaurant sales with a few other channels. We will be working with the landowner’s Pick Your Own fruit operation with our own Pick Your Own veggies, herbs and flowers in addition to a CSA.
Over the years, we will steadily ramp up our on-site programming which is core to our mission and who we are as farmers. We plan to host small events invitational dinners, cocktail hours, small retreats and other educational and healing programming. We are deeply committed to creating a healing, nurturing, joyous space.
