Summer 2021

Two year-old milkweed crop

Looking healthy, this crop was planted fall 2019. A variety of annual and perennial wild flowers are at the ready to supply nectar for newly hatched Monarchs.

We were long-term Alaskans who have always gravitated to the outdoors. We have found our way to the warmer and sunnier climate in central Vermont. We are happy to be here, developing our farm with earth-friendly principles guiding our decision making at every step. When we picked the crops we wanted to focus on, our intent was to support pollinator habitat - in particular the Monarch butterfly. We have since come to appreciate the importance of this habitat for native bees and songbirds. Our objective is to be a model of conservation farming. And, I think we will enjoy some amazing floriculture along the journey!
