MEET YOUR NEW NEIGHBORHOOD FARMERS
Eli and Valerie are excited to establish roots in the thriving community of the Upper Valley. The couple ran a part-time organic vegetable operation from 2015-2019 in Fairfax, Vermont, as they searched for their forever farm. They are honored to carry on the tradition of organic farming on Butternut Road, at the former home of Killdeer Farm and Greenhouses. Please stop by the farmstand to say “hi” and to introduce yourself.
FARM PHILOSOPHIES AND PRACTICES
Honey Field Farm is committed to clean, sustainable, soil-building practices that prioritize health. You can trust our business to:
Rotate crops each season
Allow land to rest for a season before going back into production
Organically manage our fields, keeping harmful chemicals out of your food, soil, and waterways.
Utilize integrated pest management
Test our soil and water annually to ensure our practices are meeting our goals
Follow a published food safety plan to ensure all veggies coming out of our wash station are clean and safe for your family
Our fields, vegetables, and herbs are certified organic. Although our flower starts are not certified, we take care to source our materials responsibly and provide transparency about our growing practices. We are always happy to answer questions about how we grow!
“The care of the earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope.”
- The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays of Wendell Berry
COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY
We dedicate ourselves to growing nutritious food with sustainable, organic practices to promote healthy soils, people, and communities. We want to give everyone the chance to enjoy fresh, nutritious produce. We aim to increase regional food security with efficient practices to make high-quality produce affordable and accessible, and by collaborating with the local organizations doing this important work.
We are passionate about working with agencies and organizations that address food insecurity and make sure that all Vermonters have access to healthy, delicious food.
Our Free Choice CSA is eligible for NOFA-VT’s Farm Share Program, which provides financial support for families living at or below 185% of the federal poverty level.
We collaborate with Willing Hands to glean leftover vegetables from our fields for local human services agencies and neighbors in need.
We work with Vermont Food Bank to donate funny-shaped or excess produce.
