In the heart of Central Vermont, we are raising healthy (natural and sustainable), happy (free range and loved) animals and vegetables. In addition to raising tasty food, we provide a wonderful respite for visitors. Our Omnivore’s Farm Share provides local, organically managed meat (pork, chicken, turkey, lamb and goat), eggs, vegetables, and goat milk in a free-choice, year-round format. We also sell our products individually at the farm and local farmer’s market. We offer people the opportunity to experience a bit of farm life through lodging or events in our Barn Guest House or paid farm experiences, such as learning to milk, collecting eggs or being a farmer-in-training.
We practice relational farming, inviting members and visitors to share and enjoy our farm and its products—connecting people to farms so they can both source high quality, healthy, well-raised food, and so they can learn how their food can be produced sustainably.
We work hard and have long days, but aim to be as efficient as possible by working smarter, coming to the day prepared to work hard and taking care of our bodies during the day. We care about the quality of our work, our team, our community, our land and our products and expect the same of all that work with us regardless of whether they are volunteers, apprentices or paid staff. We have high expectations of ourselves and we expect all team members to perform at their best, (most of the time).
We have a strengths-based management philosophy. We don’t believe in fixing people’s weaknesses but rather managing around them. The benefit is people spend most of their time in areas where they can excel.
