Open Way Farm has at its center the land.
This land is rich with possibility, and we are exploring various farming models as we learn about the growing seasons of Vermont. We come to this project with various skills for homesteading and small scale agriculture– from vegetable growing to carpentry to parenting to education– and have many skills to gain as we grow this project and community.
Currently we are growing vegetables and chickens on a homestead and small market basis. We sell vegetables at the Adamant Cooperative and the Plainfield Farmer’s Market in season. Our vision is to scale up to use as much of the land as is reasonable and responsible. We use sustainable organic practices. We wouldn’t want to feed our children anything that would harm them, or farm in a way that would put them at risk, and that is the standard that guides our agricultural decision-making.
