Inspiration!

Good. Clean. Fair.               Slow Food Vermont  boils what is important down to these simple words. And when they teamed up with Humaneitarian.org to host a “Heritage Breed Supper” at Half Pint Farm at the Intervale, that sounded like an event we wanted to be a part of.  The […]

Celebrating Community & the Floating Bridge

The Floating Bridge is a notable landmark and a special gathering spot.  So special that it is the namesake for our cooperative of local businesses that offer people the opportunity to experience small farm living, locally raised farm products, and the seasonal beauty of Central Vermont’s working agricultural landscape, the Floating Bridge Food & Farms Cooperative.

Music to our Ears

If the earnest team working on Vermont’s Farm to Plate were shooting a video add for buying local veggies they couldn’t have gotten away with it.  If our grandmothers overheard us, they would be pleased as punch. Even as I sit here I’m thinking – did that really happen? Did two teenage boy neighbors ask […]

March (kidding) Madness

Welcome to March and all of its madness. This year for some it may be the madness that can come at the not-quite-end of a long, cold, snowy winter.  For others it is all about basketball.  For us, and others like Fat Toad Farm, it is all about kidding or lambing madness. For colleagues…sugaring! Ours […]

Head over Heels

Last Sunday morning started on some grim notes. Weasel struck again and we found ourselves composting headless chickens. Current score = weasel(s) 30, farmers nil. But moments later one of the young pigs plopped into the water bin trying to cool off. The bin was on a sloping landscape and with its squirming to maintain […]

New Beginnings

Spring and its new beginnings are blooming at the farm.   This past week has seen several new beginnings including: potatoes, tomatoes, peas and the first carrots in the ground!  Glance into the near hoophouse (that just a few weeks ago housed goats and hens) to enjoy the site of tomatoes happily in the ground!

Organic Meetings

We were thrilled to host the NOFA VT(Northeast Organic Food Association) board of directors meeting this week. We know the convenience of our central location is a key decision factor for groups hosting state-wide meetings. We feel lucky to serve such great organizations. And it is as fun to have the farm feed good work […]
