JohnCrowFarmGroton’s John Crow Farm has become Massachusett’s first CSA bankruptcy, leaving thousands of dollars in debt and disappointed foodies from here to Boston. The farm, owned by Robert Varisco, operated out of 170 Old Ayer Road from 2009 until it abruptly stopped delivering meat and vegetables this March.

A large, vocal, group of people who have been touched by the bankruptcy are organizing around, and communicating through, a Facebook group, What happened to John Crow Farm? The page also seems to have become a rallying point for other Massachusetts CSAs and farms offering to help out John Crow Farm customers.
