Birdsong Farm is an ecologically-driven, community-minded, human-scale farm in Stockbridge, Vermont. Nestled in the foothills of the Green Mountains, Birdsong Farm grows food that is environmentally sound and socially just. We grow a diversity of vegetables, herbs, and flowers, and rotationally graze laying hens and dairy and beef cows on the ancestral territory of the Abenaki people.
Clearfield Farm is a certified organic vegetable and cut flower farm located in Granville, VT. We focus on quality, which means our produce is always fresh and full of flavor. We also focus on accessibility, which is why we aim to offer our produce at affordable prices. From our Spring greens to our Winter squashes, you can always expect the best.

Our high tunnels also give us a place to start vegetable plants for your gardens.
