Fresh Produce and Artisan Farmstead Pizza. Hopefully it conjures for you what our pizza is all about – awesome crust topped with tasty farm produce. Throw the word “seasonal” in there and you really get our drift – no vine-ripened tomatoes in winter!
Our Pizza Philosophy is this – pizza should be chewy, gooey and full of flavor.
Our Food Philosophy is this – try and eat with the seasons – and in Vermont we have four!
Our Mission? Prove to you that “seasonal” eating can be rich, exciting and tasty.
We use 100% local organic flours and local farm ingredients – many from our own farm. Our pizza is prepared and baked at the farm in our wood-fired oven and packaged for you to take home and have it when it’s convenient for you- it reheats beautifully in a hot oven or a grill for 5 minutes!
Heartwood Farm is a diversified vegetable farm located in South Albany, Vt. Bordered by beaver ponds, sugar maple, and spruce, our goal is to bring food to all corners of our community and to continue the thriving rural traditions in our lives and work. Along with growing vegetables we tap around 700 maples using non-leaded buckets and boil sap in a wood-fired evaporator.
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.

Mont Eden Farm sits in a quiet, remote area of Orange County. It’s an old hill farm, with a 200 + year old house and barn and a great long Vermont history, of which someday, I hope to become a part. All products are grown chemical-free, with a focus on quality and unique varieties.
Owl Hill Farm is located, thanks to the generosity of our neighbors, on East Hill Road in Plainfield. On three intensely managed acres we produce a wide variety of vegetables, using practices we consider “beyond organic”.
A certified organic vegetable farm in Craftsbury Village with a goal of providing the greatest vegetable diversity for as much of the year as possible. Greenhouses, root cellars, and an array of season extension methods are used to achieve this goal.
Rusty Bird Farm is located on our off-grid homestead in Walden. We grow a wide variety of vegetables on 1 ½ acres and also produce seedlings, maple syrup, sauerkraut and eggs. We follow organic growing practices but are not certified organic. Our soil program involves compost and manure, mineral amendments, organic fertilzers and cover crops. Our heavy soils require substantial tillage in their initial years. Now that our fields are established we look forward to experimenting with low-till equipment, crop rotations, cover crops and mulch to reduce soil disturbance. We have never used any pesticides, organic or chemical, instead focusing on crop health and the use of physical barriers like row cover. We have two large hoophouses for growing tomatoes in the summer and greens in winter and a small hoophouse to raise seedlings in the spring. Our love of vegetables shows through the diversity found in our fields. We are constantly trialing varieties to find the best tasting and strongest growing cultivars.
Rusty Bird Farm is named after the Rusty Blackbird, an imperiled and unique species found throughout the boreal forests of this continent. Before starting to farm full-time, Caleb spent three memorable springs studying these birds in the bogs of northern New England and Alaska.
