Rockville Market Farm
The Year Ahead (2013)
Our family farm is located in the beautiful hills of Starksboro, Vermont. It encompasses 108 acres of preserved land that we purchased in the year 2000. The fields have been farmed for hundreds of years. Sometimes when we’re working in the hot sun for hours, our minds start to wander, and it’s interesting to think about what it must have been like all those years ago. The trees were cleared by hand, massive boulders were moved and perimeter stone walls were built. There were no farm photographers, nobody posted to Facebook, and we can only imagine that regulations were minimal. The type of agriculture we practice today is evolving quickly and 2013 is lining up to be a very exciting year. Some of the highlights include a planned expansion of “Eric’s Eggs”, the addition of several large markets, and an on farm dinner series. In an effort to focus our resources we will be suspending our CSA for the year. A great option to the traditional CSA model is the aggregation style businesses that have taken off in the last couple of years. In the Burlington we encourage you to join the Intervale Food Hub. In the Boston area you have two great options; Farmers to You and Graze Delivered. These businesses are very supportive of our farm, by joining them you are also supporting Rockville Market Farm.
We hope you continue to visit this web site frequently. We post frequent updates to Facebook, and write a bi-monthly blog. If you ever find yourself in the Starksboro area, give us a call and we’d love to show you around. As always, many thanks for your support over the years.
