Umoja Farmers organized themselves cooperatively in 2017. Umoja signifies togetherness or unity in the African language, Swahili.  Umoja Farmers represent the Congolese, Burundi, and Rwandan communities.  Their plots are located in Concord, NH.  Currently, Umoja Farmers are growing primarily for home consumption. However, they aspire to build their sustainable farm enterprises and are working to grow their production capacity. We anticipate expanding Fresh Start Farms CSA pickups and SNAP accessible farm stands into the Concord area for the 2018 season.
