Red Fire Farm

After a day of hiking, leafing peeping or pumpkin picking, you’ll want to be sure to join us for this quintessential New England autumn event at Red Fire Farm in Granby. Wheelhouse Farm Truck and Catering will be preparing a delicious multi-course meal using the bounty from the certified organic farm. Not only will you be led on a tour of the CSA farm, you’ll also engage in a discussion about the partnerships local farms maintain with The Food Bank, and how their healthy produce makes its way to underserved communities throughout western Massachusetts through our Mobile Food Bank program.

All proceeds from this event will support the mission of The Food Bank to feed our neighbors in need and lead the community to end hunger.

About Red Fire Farm
