basilActive Community Projects

We work with communities across the state to protect beloved places for recreation and wildlife, and farms that are sources of local food and our agricultural heritage.

We are currently working on the following projects:

Bluffside Farm in Newport
Mighty Food Farm in Shaftsbury
Scragg Forest in Waitsfield
Jackson Farm & Forest in Westford
Armstrong Farm in Calais

We couldn't do these projects without the support of the community and our dedicated members. Your support makes all the difference in these local farm and forest projects. Please join or renew your membership today!

Spencer and Jennifer BlackwellAffordable Farmland: The Farmland Access Program

We created our Farmland Access Program to help new farmers get access to farmland that they can afford.

Finding high quality, affordable farmland is one of the most difficult obstacles for beginning farmers and expanding agricultural operations.

The challenge is especially acute for enterprises that depend on being near Vermont’s economic growth centers—areas where land values remain strong even in the current economic climate. Supporting local communities, local food production, and the long-term productive use of farmland are all objectives of this program. Read more.
