Donating fresh food to local food pantries
By now you've heard that more of your neighbors are facing financial need and food insecurity than ever before.
At the best of times, local food pantries struggle to provide fresh food, instead relying on shelf-stable processed food. We believe everyone deserves healthy food, and it's why last year we donated over 1200 lbs of produce to local food pantries through our Farm to Food Pantry program.
Education Director Jon Belber recently biked over 50 carbon-neutral miles to plant carrots at school gardens in Quincy, Boston and Milton. His goal was to raise awareness and funds for this critical program.
Online store: Thursdays, 10 am - midnight
Shop for the freshest local produce in season, plus a carefully curated selection of local gourmet items like coffee, chocolate, eggs, freshly baked bread, jams, pasta sauce and more.
A link to the store will be made available on our website on Thursday mornings at 10am.
After placing an order online, customers will be given a pick up time at the farm in their confirmation email.
Customers will then arrive at the farm at their scheduled time, picking up in our safe 'drive through' system.
April 15th through November
Your kids will love quests, which are like a treasure hunt set on a one-hour nature walk. Holly Hill Farm is pleased to introduce a brand new quest this season.
Virtual guides detailing this quest (and many others on the South Shore) are available online at South Shore Quests for a suggested donation of $5 to help defray costs.
