Joe Swartz on “why he farms”

Joe Swartz is the owner of the Swartz Family Farm and along with Sarah Swartz manages the Meadow Street Market (the big blue barn) in North Amherst, MA.

The market is a year round outlet for fresh vegetables, local food products and crafts.  A great place to visit on Tuesday and Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.

Joe spoke at a community “fireside chat” about his experience growing up in North Amherst and farming today.  This event was sponsored by the North Amherst Community Farm community organization.  Please see this 5-minute clip and share it with friends who want to understand what motivates farmers.

Be sure to stop by the Meadow Street Market and say hello to Joe and Sarah:

Tuesday 3:30pm –  7:30pm

Friday 3:00pm – 7:30pm

Saturday 9:00am – 2:00pm
