What do we care about at Red Clover Farm LLC? We have three priorities: grow healthy food, care for the earth, and serve our community by helping busy individuals and families be able to access fresh fruits and veggies.
believe healthy food starts with healthy soil. That's why we use regenerative,
no-till agricultural methods - to build up organic matter in the soil and to provide conditions for a flourishing microbiome.
In partnership with our host, Fat Chance Farm, we use composted manure
from other animals on the property as fertilizer. Combined with cover crops, these methods build up the soil over time.
Although we are not certified organic, we follow organic practices and do not use herbicides or pesticides, which aren't good for the consumer or the environment.
Caring for the earth is more than just building up soil. We
limit the machinery we use and do as much hand labor as possible. We use intensive growing methods to grow the most produce possible in a small area.
We also focus on ecological growing, integrating herbs and flowers into our market garden to promote biodiversity, repel pests, and encourage beneficial insects (especially pollinators). And when you buy from us your produce doesn't have to be transported hundreds or thousands of miles to get to you.
Participating in the local community is also important to us. Our goal is to serve the needs of the community in Lamoille Valley and we want to see it flourish. Right now we believe the best way we can serve our community is by partnering with Fat Chance Farm to provide contact-free delivery service!
We know our customers are busy people and sometimes it's hard to figure out how to use the fruits and veggies that are in season! That's why we provide recipes and other resources with our CSA shares, and that's why we sell curated, low-prep products such as salad and salsa boxes.
You can find us at the Morrisville Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. If you aren't ready to commit to a CSA but you want to check out our veggies, come see us there!
