Green Mountain Girls Farm

In the heart of Central Vermont, we are raising healthy (natural and sustainable), happy (free range and loved) animals and vegetables. In addition to raising tasty food, we provide a wonderful respite for visitors. Our Omnivore’s Farm Share provides local, organically managed meat (pork, chicken, turkey, lamb and goat), eggs, vegetables, and goat milk in a free-choice, year-round format. We also sell our products individually at the farm and local farmer’s market. We offer people the opportunity to experience a bit of farm life through lodging or events in our Barn Guest House or paid farm experiences, such as learning to milk, collecting eggs or being a farmer-in-training.


Offerings

Local Food - At our farmstand we sell our pasture-raised, sustainably-managed pork, chicken, turkey and goat meat, eggs, goat milk, vegetables, pickles, tomatoes and other canned goods. Thursday evenings from 4pm to 7pm, the farm stand is staffed and fully stocked. Any other day you can pop in between 7am and 8pm for self-serve shopping. If you are shopping for the first time, we request that you come on Thursday or call and schedule a time.

CSA Shares - Year round, full diet shares are available two ways: free-choice through our Omnivore's Share and on a debit system through our Farmstand Share

Prepared Food - Soups, stocks, pickles, and other prepared and preserved goods

Lodging & Farmstays - Step into the beauty of Vermont's working landscape with a stay at Green Mountain Girls Farm, whether as a base for regional recreation or an immersive farm experience. Our barn guest-house combines the cozy comforts you would expect from a top notch bed and breakfast with the independence of a rental property. Our Farmhouse Inn is a luxurious three-bedroom vacation space with gourmet kitchen, incredible views, and all the comforts of home, available November through May.

Farm Experiences - Put on your boots, roll up your sleeves and farm! Pick from a range of hands-on, authentic farm experiences - from a few hours or a morning of animal care and collecting eggs, to delicious day or half day of field-to-plate and teat-to-table learning. See our website for more information!

Event Space, Catering, and More - The barn’s finished space and great room can handle groups of up to 40 people.  If you are planning a celebration or event and are looking for a convenient location and fresh setting, we could be the perfect place for your birthday, retirement, or holiday party; workshop; business meeting; or retreats. We can also prepare farm-fresh food for you and your guests as well as offering flowers, favors, tours, and farms experiences. 

Farm Suppers & Concerts - We also hold community events on the farm including farm suppers and brunches, workshops, and concerts. Both Scrag Mountain Music and Red Tail Ring regularly play here.

Living “Vermont the Movie”

This week our DIY holiday party gathered most of the team who helped grow this season’s food for a mini farm experience like the ones we sell and also offer with our Floating Bridge Food and Farm Cooperative colleagues, making merry and making edible gifts for our loved ones. American Express values such events as “priceless”. True.  But they are more. Their memories are assets much like gems. And the associated engagement generates greater connection – an asset equivalent to renewable energy.

This weekend we hope many of you can join us for more at LH Stowell & Sons Christmas Tree Farm and our Holiday Shop.

Vulnerability and Viability in the Hills of Vermont

Brené Brown suggests courage is borne out of vulnerability, not strength. She goes on to say the original definition of courage is “to tell the story of who you are with your whole heart.” Her findings on shame and “wholeheartedness” inspire.

Our Cooperative intentionally invites engagement. We engage each other and our visitors as we struggle and innovate to improve the viability of our small farms and food-based enterprises. Positioning our businesses to embrace visitors, inviting them into the intimacy of our family farms and home-based businesses and community is by definition about vulnerability! 

As we prepare for the holidays, we are amazed by abundance and warmed by traditions still within reach in our neck of the woods.  Pulling together this first collection of updates and stories we’ve delighted in the opportunity to chat with peers who are celebrating the best of Vermont.
