College Spring 2017 - Week #7

Featured Farm: Pitchfork Farm

Pitchfork Farm is a 16-acre organic produce farm located in Burlington's Intervale. They focus primarily on growing salad greens, tomatoes, and root crops - though there isn’t too much that you won’t find growing here!

Owner Rob Rock also designs and builds tools, equipment, and digital apps for small farms through his company, Upstream Ag. These inventions are pretty awesome - including his "Flame Weeder," featuring a few flame-throwers, and his "Prone Weeder," which allows farmers to lie face-down to pull weeds in comfort! Check out his inventions at upstreamag.com.
