Square Roots Farm
Products: Chicken, pork, beef, duck, eggs, some veggies, some mushrooms, sheep skin, lard soap, possibly honey in the Fall.
Location: Lanesborough, MA
Details: Michael Gallagher and Ashley Amsden began operating Square Roots Farm in 2010. Their lives intersected during an apprenticeship at Maple Wind Farm in Vermont. Michael was gleaning what knowledge he could while looking for land of his own, and Ashley was exploring the cross-section of agriculture and education before heading to graduate school. In 2013, they purchased the old Fletcher Farm from Berkshire Natural Resources Council, land just two miles from Michael’s childhood home, and they were married on the farm later that year. They continue to farm joyfully on the 185 beautiful and diverse acres.
