About NOFA-VT

The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont is a nonprofit association of farmers, gardeners, and consumers working to promote an economically viable and ecologically sound Vermont food system for the benefit of current and future generations.

NOFA Vermont’s mission is to create a vital Vermont food system – one that supports consumers who want to eat local, organic food year round, farmers who want technical assistance to be the best stewards of their land and animals, and gardeners who want to grow more of their own food. To achieve our mission, NOFA Vermont works on both a statewide and community level to engage our audience.  We have developed programs to respond to organizational goals, build relationships between producers and consumers, and advocate for the interests of our audience.
