In 2003, Old Friends Farm was founded by Missy Bahret and Casey Steinberg who were...you guessed it...old friends from their college days. Missy and Casey still co-own and continually create and manage the farm. Old Friends Farm manages the farm to be part of a healthy ecosystem that fosters connection between the community and local agriculture. They are pioneers in growing ginger and turmeric in the Northeast and have expanded to include products made from their ginger and tumeric.
They are Certified Organic by Baystate Organic Certifiers, have an on-farm Certified Kitchen facility for processing, and are certified by the Commonwealth Quality Program.
