Richard Drutchas started beekeeping in Vermont over 40 years ago, founding Bee Haven Honey Farm on Norton Road in Worcester, Vt. After serving as the Vermont State Apiarist, Rick concentrated on building a commercial beekeeping operation that reached 750 hives with retail accounts across the state. In 2008, Genevieve joined Bee Haven, contributing gardens, herbs, kitchen witching, a strong back and another set of hands. In 2010 Bee Haven sold many of its hives to Northwoods Apiary in Troy, Vermont, along with our retail accounts. Today we manage 150 hives and sales from our farm, specializing in true, old world raw and unfiltered honey for the honey connoisseur. We tend our hives, raise queen bees and grow organic herbs and make products from the bounty they provide us with. We feel privileged to be a part of Vermont’s remarkable beekeeping history.

We are the ladies of Lazy Lady Farm. We produce the great milk that goes into Lazy Lady Farm’s fine artisanal cheeses. Lazy Lady Farm has been producing fine cheeses for over 25 years. We make cheese 5 – 6 days a week thereby producing cheese from the freshest milk possible. We produce the milk with organic grain, rotational grazing in the summer months, and in the winter we feed out our own hay which we grow on 12 acres here on the farm. The soils are well maintained with composted manures and minerals. We keep a herd of 40 registered Alpines. We work hard on our genetics, bringing in breeding stock from fine farms out west in order to create lovely animals and high producers. The farm is off-grid and produces its own electricity with the use of solar and wind power. We have 2 geo thermal cellars to ripen the cheeses. One for aged cheeses and one for the bloomy rind cheeses and washed rind cheeses. We employ one full time person and 4 part time folks who live in the area. A lot of work and effort goes into making our fine cheeses. As well as making cheese Lazy Lady Farm also grows beef and whey-fed pork. These animals are given a great amount of care and commitment to their well being and comfort. Please visit our booth at the farmers market and please visit our website and our spot on the Vermont cheese council website to learn more.
LePage Farm has been growing and marketing organic fruits and vegetables locally year ’round for 3 decades. We are located in Barre Town near the top of Beckley Hill and has been farmed continuously by the LePages since the Civil War. Although our clay loam soils are not considered ideal for a vegetable farm, we have always amazed customers by the flavor of our produce. This has much to do with re-mineralization of our soils, and the organic matter produced by the use of many sources of composted animal manures. We grow over 110 varieties of vegetables, the production of which we pioneered in central Vermont. Globe artichokes, honeydew melons, okra, lima beans, romanesco broccoli, sweet potatoes, peanuts, tomatilloes and many other varieties were first grown in Vermont here on this farm. And we still are working on new introductions to the brief Vermont growing season. Whether you want a golden turnip in January, or a Sharlyn melon in August, you will find professionally grown produce, worth what you pay for it from us. E-mail us with your questions or comments – firstname.lastname@example.org, or join in our radio talk show, The Curse of the Golden Turnip, Sunday 6 to 9 AM on WGDR-FM 91.1.
