The produce is stocked with the freshest available and boasts some of the sweetest flavors.
We also offer a large selection of meat from our farm and the farms of our neighbors. The animals that supply our meat are pasture raised and therefore packed with extra nutrients.
Our farmstand is stocked with an abundance of locally produced staples. Nearly all locally sourced products are wholesome, minimally processed and organic. Shop for rolled oats, wheat berries, various types of VT grown wheat flours (whole wheat bread flour, unbleached white flour, and a sifted wheat are commonly among the offerings), pearled barley, cornmeal, popcorn and other assorted grain products.
