Noonday Farm (Winchendon)

Farm managers Beth Ingham and Bob Jennings have incorporated a nonprofit to serve residents of Winchendon by providing free organic food to those in need and offering education programs in growing healthy food and sustainable living practices. Noonday Farm currently works with the Winchendon Community Action Council to serve 350 Winchendon families. The farm also provides educational programs with hundreds of participants annually.

Mount Grace served as the fiscal sponsor for the farm as they secured legal status as an independent non-profit. In 2013, Noonday Farm placed a conservation easement on the property to ensure the permanent protection of the acreage as farmland—helping to secure more sustainable agriculture in Winchendon.
