The Massachusetts chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association. NOFA/Mass welcomes everyone who cares about food, where it comes from and how it’s grown

Growing Organically Since 1982

Gardening Programs

Do you buy cover crop seed, fertilizers, mineral amendments, compost, potting soil, potato and allium seed? Would you like to save money on those items? If so, the bulk order might be perfect for you. Prior to the spring growing season, NOFA/Mass organizes a bulk order with popular suppliers, for distribution at sites around MA/CT/RI. Take advantage of significant savings through group purchasing power and collective shipping, while helping NOFA support organic practices throughout the region. The order is open to both members and non-members & no order is too small or minimum order required! Items available: fertilizers, mineral amendments, pest control, feed-grade supplements, useful tools for the farm/garden, compost, potting soil, cover crop seed, potato and allium seed.

NOFA/Mass's Policy Program

NOFA/Mass advocates for sustainable agricultural policies that strengthen the resilience of our local communities. While primarily an educational organization, our policy team works on issues as diverse as organic standards, food system transparency, and regulations that support sustainable farms.

Raw Milk

Buying fresh, unpasteurized milk from a local farm is good for your family's health, good for the farm and good for the environment. NOFA/Mass is working to make safe, healthy raw milk easily available in Massachusetts.

Soil Technical Assistance Program

NOFA/Mass is developing a service to provide farmers, homesteaders, gardeners, and land managers across the state with soil technical assistance. We hope to offer soil test recommendations at an affordable rate in a timely manner to to help those working to address soil balancing.

Our suggestions will be based on the Albrecht principles for soil cation balancing and addressing trace element deficiencies. We will offer holistic management recommendations to help reduce barriers to building soil health across the state. NOFA/Mass also is offering a set of soil carbon proxy tests through our Soil Carbon Program if you are interested in getting a series of these test performed on your land.
