Nutwood Farm Crowdfunding Campaign  |  Feb 1 – March 12, 2017

Update – December 2017:

We’ve been working hard all season to raise our barn and we’re nearly there!  As part of our commitment to financial transparency, here is a breakdown of the materials and expenses that have gone into the project.  Labor, of course, was provided gratis with gratitude.  Thank you for making this possible!






Update – September 2017:

Up! Up! Up!


Update – July 2017:

Dirt, sweat and concrete – the adventure begins!


Update – March 2017:

120%1Thank you to all our supporters!

With your help we fully funded our project to build an innovative barn/greenhouse to use as a cultivation space, a passive solar nut dehydrator, a mount for our off-grid pv solar, and space for numerous other farm projects.  We are so grateful for the opportunity to grow our farm infrastructure and see our vision come to life.

Thank you for your investment in the future of community food, diverse local food systems, ecological agriculture, climate change solutions, and delicious nuts!







Barnraiser Kickoff Event:
Nutwood Farm presents the film “INHABIT”
Cummington Community House (33 Main St, Cummington)
February 4th, 2017 at 6:30pm – FREE!

Join us for a launch party and free community film screening of “INHABIT: A PERMACULTURE PERSPECTIVE.”  Beautiful and poignant, INHABIT features the voices and visions of social and ecological changemakers in the Northeast and beyond. The film presents a way of looking to ecosystems for inspiration, using natural principles to weave human systems into the landscape.  It reminds us that humans are in fact capable of being forces of planetary healing. In these challenging times, we hope this event will inspire more collaborations and projects and that heal and nourish our community, such as the exciting work unfolding at Nutwood Farm.  Before the film, we will share our current plans to grow hazelnuts and other perennial staple foods on our farm, along with our own 3-minute video and details about the launch of our crowdfunding campaign.  How can we all find ways to inhabit our earth, our community, and our place more fully? What could we accomplish if we all work together?

Admission is free and open to all.  Refreshments will be served.  The event begins at 6:30pm at the Cummington Community House.  Childcare will also be provided during the film screening.  For more information please call Sara at 413-824-1840 or email
