Welcome to the homepage of the Pittsfield Buying Club.
We buy healthy, Maine grown food and products (and some fair trade items, too) to support local producers as part of a vibrant local economy. We seek health, wholeness, and creativity through our food.
We place orders once a month: the buying window opens the first Friday of every month and stays open until the following Thursday unless otherwise posted.
To learn more about how we work, please visit our webpage.

Below you'll see who we work with; we're always looking for more farmers and changing as the seasons progress.
Want to order stuff you don't see on the list? Email your ideas, and we'll see how we can make the coop work better for you. Our power comes from working together!
Much of what we offer in the darker months of the year can be found at the Pittsfield Farmers Market
STOCK FULL AND OPEN Monday and Thursday from 2-6pm at Hathorne Park until the end of October.
We have Top of Maine's all natural, non-confined, Certified grass-fed beef, pork, and lamb

We also have squash and pumpkins from the Burgess Family Farm
