Homecoming Farm is a three acre NOFA-certified organic farm on the property of the Sisters of St. Dominic. In its 16th season, it is founded on the principles of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Its members purchase shares in the season’s bounty and provide physical labor planting and harvesting in exchange for fresh produce during the growing season. We donate 20% of what we grow to The Interfaith Nutrition Network, and to date have donated over 2000 pounds of organic, locally grown produce to the guests of The INN for the 2012 season.
