Nestled in "Stowe Hollow," Back 40 Farm VT is a small scale mixed vegetable and berry farm founded on the community supported agriculture business model. We currently offer 30 CSA memberships with a drop off location at the Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury. Beginning in mid-June we will sell at the Waterbury Farmers Market and will be constructing a farm stand soon. Based on the ecological philosophies put forth by the renowned organic market gardeners Elliot Coleman and more recently Jean-Martin Fortier, the mission of Back 40 Farm VT is to provide fresh local produce at an affordable price.
Using low-tech, ecological and high-yield growing methods, Back 40 Farm VT will extend the season in which locals can enjoy fresh produce at a reasonable price. All of our vegetables are grown from non-GMO verified seed. We use no harsh chemicals, fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides and employ growing techniques that improve soil quality.
