A Visit to Intervale Community Farm in Vermont, and Photos From the NOFA-VT Winter Conference

Last week, Johnny's Maine-based Vermont Territory Sales Rep, Chris Hillier, visited Johnny's customer Intervale Community Farm (ICF) in Burlington, Vermont. Organized as a member-owned, community-supported agriculture (CSA) farm, ICF has grown to serve over 500 member households annually, growing and distributing produce for nine months of the year.

After the farm visit, Chris headed to the NOFA-VT Winter Conference. The conference was from Friday, February 10- Sunday February 12th at the University of Vermont (UVM).

Workshops at the conference included those from Cornell University researcher Jonathan Comstock who spoke about farming in a changing climate, as well as Deb Neher who works in the Department of Plant Soil and Science at UVM and educated people on soil health.

See photos from Chris's farm visit as well as pictures from the NOFA-VT Conference:
