Climate Friendly Farming is a form of direct action that allows us to do three things:
Prepare for the unfolding climate apartheid, building skills and community,
Be a part of fixing the climate crisis through our daily work, allowing us to survive in capitalism, while sequestering carbon, &
Help people feel happy, fed, content, and comforted by growing things they want.

Song Sparrow Farm Kitchen shifted its focus to producing food and beverages in response to flooding in July of 2023, which made it impossible to harvest or consume any crops from our main farm Florence. Using the commercial kitchen facilities at Mycoterra Farm, we were able to increase kitchen production while waiting to harvest limited produce from a secondary farm plot in Holyoke. Song Sparrow Farm Kitchen is able to create a unique set of foods and beverages featuring locally grown fruits, veggies, and herbs that support our health without sacrificing flavor.
Song Sparrow Farm’s plans:
To grow nutrient dense food, we use small scale, soil health oriented growing techniques.
We grow plants by mimicking ecosystems, with life affirming intention, & market gardening efficiencies.
We are mostly queer folks growing food as acts of Love, Resilience, and Resistance.
We process our produce to increase accessibility and farm viability.
