You’ve heard about organic farming and maybe you’ve heard about folks who don’t use pesticides, but when was the last time you tasted a fresh tomato, root vegetables in the middle of winter, farm fresh eggs, or humanely raised, hormone-free, free-range chicken?
In the Heart of Vermont you will find year-round purveyors of seeds and organic vegetables, such as High Mowing Seeds and Pete’s Green’s, as well as the many other dairy based and organic growers offering their goods at the seasonal Farmer’s Market at Atkins Field in Hardwick, and the town squares in Greensboro, Craftsbury and Cabot.
The Center for an Agricultural Economy, based in Hardwick, supports and promotes many local agricultural efforts and supports the idea that agriculturally based businesses can form a vibrant and integral base to a community. For those who wish to pursue an agricultural and/or environmentally based career, Sterling College in Craftsbury provides a small and intimate campus to pursue those studies.
