Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR)

The Department’s mission is to help keep the Massachusetts’ food supply safe and secure, and to work to keep Massachusetts agriculture economically and environmentally sound.

COVID-19: Resources for the Agricultural Community

In response to the spread of COVID-19 and the measures being taken to address it, MDAR has compiled a list of resources to keep our agricultural community informed and aware of relevant policies and best practices: COVID-19 Resources for Agriculture.

We also provide a link to our many farmstands, CSA farms, greenhouses, and farmers markets that are open for business, and making adjustments to ensure safety measures for you and their employees. Be sure to check farm websites for updated hours and options for delivery: COVID-19: How & Where to Buy Local.

Who we serve

We support, regulate and enhance the rich diversity of the Commonwealth’s agricultural community to promote economically and environmentally sound food safety and animal health measures, and fulfill agriculture’s role in energy conservation and production.

MDAR programs and services A-Z.
