Meet Adam and Jess from Adam’s Berry Farm! Since its conception in 2001, the farm’s goal was to create community through food and berries. With a focus on the environment, they use Certified Organic practices, hoe, hand-weed, and ensure those who work on their farm and purchase their berries that the health of the environment and soil is forefront.

After 11 years of farming in the Intervale, they moved to East Charlotte (about 10 miles south of Burlington) in 2012 to continue their berry farm on a beautiful piece of conserved farmland. Although they are not open for Pick-Your-Own this time of year, you can still enjoy their delicious berries in the Vermont Vegetable Variety shares this week!
