Rainbow Harvest Farms

Rainbow Harvest Farms is a small family farm in Greenfield, MA. We grow fruit, vegetables and berries as well as culinary and medicinal herbs. We also offer the highest quality vegetable transplants in the spring. We specialize in heirloom and unique produce varieties, while also growing many of the standard veggies that you'd expect!

In the spring we offer dozens of varieties of heirloom tomato plants, as well as sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, lettuce, broccoli, and dozens of other vegetable and herb starts. From May through November we offer a wide variety of the tastiest produce you've ever laid your tongue on!

All of our produce is sold within 50 miles of the farm, with over 90% being sold right here in Greenfield. You can find our produce at the Greenfield Farmers' Market downtown at Court Sq. from May - Thanksgiving. We are also participating in a cooperative CSA, the Common Wealth CSA, with 3 other local farms. We have the most convenient farm share pickup in Franklin County, right downtown next to Green Fields Market in Main St.

We consider our growing practices to be "beyond organic". We use conservation tillage practices, and perform most farm tasks by hand. We never spray any chemicals, organic or not, that may have a negative impact on beneficial insects and biodiversity on the farm. Pests are controlled through increased fertility and row covers, as well as the introduction of beneficial insects and maintenance of beneficial insect habitat.

We have many ongoing projects on the farm including the planting of a permaculture based food forest on a 2 acre plot, as well as various breeding projects (tomatoes, peppers, and brassicas) focusing on 3 areas, cold tolerance, flavor, and dehybridization of out favorite hybrid varieties.
