Purveyor of meat, eggs, and vegetables by composting school food waste.
Farmor Farm began when an old Vermont farmer asked how we were going to remove the tree stumps remaining after building our post and beam home. We expected a piece of equipment would do the work, but Howard suggested using pigs. Fence the pigs around a stump, give them plenty of water and in a short amount of time the stumps would release their hold in the ground as the pigs dug around for truffles. Not only are pigs natures own tillers, they entertain themselves rooting around and voila, the stumps became free enough the jeep could pull them out of the way. The end result was favorable soil for growing and meat to eat. The soils benefited as well and after terracing the hillside long rows of fabulous soil grows veggies with enthusiasm. Add a high tunnel to extend the tomato season and hot house capturing waste heat off the outside wood furnace, you have fresh food year round, yes winter too. We do peddle our wares at the Northfield Farmers sumer market Tuesdays 3-6 and the Winter Market the fist Sunday of the month. We compost the local school food waste with chickens providing high quality compost to renew our soil. Lastly, when we find an exotic piece of wood, we turn the wood into beautiful furniture and crafts. Come see!!
