Burnt Rock Farm in Huntington, VT

Burnt Rock Farm in Huntington, VT


Hi there,

Been outside recently? Noticed a change in the weather? Feeling a little SPRING in your step? Oh yeah, it's here, at long last. We are sending you some tender leafy greens and some absolutely adorable elba potatoes, along with a whole slew of other veggies, so you can feast seasonally. For variety subscribers, we are super curious to hear your thoughts on our favorite tuber, the Jerusalem artichoke! Such flavor. Such taste. Such style. Such grace. 

Big thank you go those who have signed up for summer!  If you’re still hesitating, we recommend heading over to our new platform to go through the registration process, browse baskets and add-ons, and complete your subscription. We’ve extended the deadline to get a free tote bag with your order to this Friday, so you still have a couple of days to lock down the most stylish grocery shopping accessory in town! Don’t miss out.

Plant Sale

Red Wagon Plants in Hinesburg and River Berry Farm in Fairfax have been growing some excellent organic vegetable, herb, and flower starts, which are now ready to find homes. If you're interested in starting a garden, or want to have some herbs in your kitchen, this is the sale for you.

Because of our infrastructure and member base, we're able to offer these starts to you at a discounted price while still paying our farmers their full, fair share. You can also stop by Gardener's Supply on your way out to pick up soil, compost, and other gardening needs. 

Please note: this a pre-sale only, which means that we will only have plants available to those who order in advance. That means there will be no plants available for sale the day-of. All orders must be placed before 5pm on Sunday, April 28.

And though we would love to deliver them to you, they are very fragile, and thus can only be picked up at the Intervale Food Hub on Wednesday, May 1 and Thursday, May 2 from 7am-7pm. 

On pick-up day, we will be sampling some of our finest Food Hub goods; answering your questions about plants, cooking, or the summer season; and generally having fun. We can't wait to see you!

Warm wishes,
The Intervale Food Hub Team
