Indian Line Farm

Indian Line Farm in South Egremont, MA is one of the oldest CSA’s (that’s Community Supported Agriculture) in the country. The farmers, Elizabeth Keene and Al Thorpe, feed so many families, mine included. I also get to work for them at the Great Barrington Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.

Great Barrington Farmers’ Market


Our motto at the Great Barrington Farmers’ Market is “always local, always fresh”. We pride ourselves in that our 25 vendors come from within a 50 mile radius which not only promotes the local agricultural community, but in this time of energy crisis, we are keeping our food dollars local and our energy consumption to a minimum. Come enjoy the bountiful selection we have to offer.
