Week of September 19, 2017

Andy Jones Harvesting Broccoli at Intervale Community Farm

Featured Farm: Intervale Community Farm, Burlington, VT

The Intervale Community Farm is located just down the road from the Intervale Center. This certified organic farm was started in 1990, right around the time that the Intervale Center nonprofit was founded, and it's considered one of the oldest CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farms in the country. Andy Jones, above, has managed the Intervale Community Farm since 1993, and he has an amazing crew that works with him. Often, ICF will deliver their vegetables to the Intervale Food Hub by tractor! They now farm on 44 acres in the Intervale, and grow a diverse range of certified organic vegetables to feed their CSA members, Interavle Food Hub members, as well as donating large amounts of food to the Intervale Center's Fair Share program and the Vermont Food Bank.
