HIP Program

Using HIP Benefits at Farmer Dave’s

What is the HIP Program?

The Healthy Incentives Program (HIP) is a statewide program. If you spend your SNAP dollars at a participating retailer, you can earn extra benefits (up to $40/month for a household of 1-2 people, $60/month for a household of 3-5 people, and $80/month for a household of 6+ people).

We currently accept SNAP/HIP at the following retail locations:

You can also use SNAP benefits to sign up for our CSA program, which is a subscription of weekly boxes of produce. Download a membership agreement form, or contact farm@farmerdaves.net or call (978) 349-1952 for a registration form. For SNAP customers, we set up a monthly payment plan to cover the cost of the CSA (rather than having you pay for the entire season up front).

We offer two sizes of the vegetable share (a small at $94.09 per month, and a regular at $129.01 per month, from June through October). The fruit share comes in one size at it is $77.60 per month from June through October.

For November through mid-December, we offer a Late Fall CSA Share (a small at 2 monthly payments of $104.28, and a regular at 2 monthly payments of $145.50)

Under the HIP program, you are eligible for either $40, $60, or $80 per month reimbursed when you pay for your share(s) via your SNAP benefits. The reimbursement amount is $40/month for a household of 1-2, $60/month for a household of 3-5, and $80/month for a household of 6 or more. Both the payment and the reimbursement would automatically come from your SNAP account monthly, on the same day of the month that your benefits are loaded.
