Welcome to the Bars Farm
The Bars Farm is family owned and operated vegetable farm, located at 146 Mill Village Road in Deerfield, MA. We retail and wholesale a large diversified selection of our own vegetables and flowers. We are one of the most diversified farms in our area seeding all our own vegetables and most of our flowers, and selling on site at our farm stand. We wholesale our vegetables to local markets and restaurants as well. Wholesale is done from our converted tobacco barn, which serves as a packing and washing area. Deliveries to local restaurants are available. We accept debit and credit cards at our farm stand.
The Bars Farm is founded on the experience and education of Herb & Mary Marsh, Allison & Dean Landale as well as our customers’ requests and suggestions over the years. While our experience, knowledge and education help to increase our production, our customers are one of our greatest assets. We concentrate on quality, freshness and variety.
We believe in a healthy farm system, and agriculture working in balance with the natural environment. This begins with healthy soil that stores water and nutrients which provides a stable base to support plant roots. In a sustainable system, soil is kept in balance and crops are rotated through the fields to replace nutrients in the soil. This is why we believe in and practice IPM and are involved with the Massachusetts IPM committee. The idea is that as farmers take from the land, they also give back.
We make a living from the land, and we nurture it so we will be able to continue to do so into the future. Sustainable farming enhances and preserves the land, so future generations may continue to use it for food production. The aim of sustainable agriculture is to be profitable and meet human consumption needs, while being environmentally sound and contributing to the community.
