Full Well Farm is an organic no-till farm in Adams, MA owned and run by Meg Bantle (they/she) and Laura Tupper-Palches (she/her). They grow vegetables and cut flowers on less than an acre of permanent beds at a hand-scale. They sell through a box-style veggie CSA, flower CSA, attend the North Adams Farmers Market, have an online farmstand, and some wholesale to local restaurants and grocers. The farm focuses on food access, soil health and community.
Beginning part time in April (16-32 hours), Full Time (40 hours) May-September, and part time in October.
Schedule May-September: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Saturdays are required through mid-October because it is market day, which luckily for us is just a ten minute drive from the farm, so it isn’t a super early morning!
