Offering Our May Share-the-Plate, Westbay Farm, was founded in 2005 on the 240-year-old former Barton Dairy Farm. Westbay farm’s mission is to provide fresh chemical-free produce to low and moderate income people. The farm is owned by the city of Warwick and leased to the non-profit Westbay Community Action. One of the many sites receiving low (or no) cost produce from Westbay is Westminster’s Sharing Locker.
