Shoestring Farm is a small farm growing vegetables and small fruits on approximately 3 cultivated acres.
We also produce maple syrup and honey, as well as plants for sale in spring--perennial and annual flowers, vegetable starts, and herbs. Our 22 acre farm is located on Christian Hill in Colrain, Massachusetts in the Deerfield River Watershed.
