Mark your calendar! We have two upcoming events at Root 5 Farm. Open Farm Day this Sunday 10am-1pm, and we're hosting a CSA Potluck Farm Supper on Sunday Sept 10th at 4pm.
Stop by the farm this Sunday August 20th for a guided tour of our fields, greenhouses, and pack house. Check our website for directions to the farm. You can taste some unusual varieties we grow, and we'll have fresh vegetables, sauerkraut and kimchi available for purchase. This is a great opportunity to learn more about our organic production methods and see one of your local farms in action! This Open Farm Day is part of a greater statewide event called Vermont Open Farm Week. Check out the full schedule on diginvt.com and set up your VT farm itinerary today!
On Sunday September 10th at 4pm, we're hosting a CSA member potluck supper. Bring a dish to share and come to the farm for a walking tour of our fields, greenhouses, and pack house. This is a great opportunity to meet fellow CSA members, share stories, and see all your Fall CSA vegetables growing in the fields.
It's time to sign up for Fall CSA Shares! Our fall crops are looking beautiful and we'd love to share this bounty with you! Check out photos on our website to see what you can expect in our Fall Shares. Our shares are diverse and full of fresh greens right through the end of December! We also have Add-on Share options of Pasture-Raised Chicken, Pork, and Beef for the fall. Plus, we're partnering with Scott Farms in Dummerston to bring you Fall Fruit Shares this season. So you can get apples, plums, and other fresh local fruits along with your vegetables each week! Sign up online today!
It's rainbow time at the farmers market! We have the full spectrum of colors on display. Our summer crops are abundant and so delicious right now! Come get a taste of ripe heirloom tomatoes, Carmen sweet peppers, Romanesco summer squash, and Ping Tung eggplant! These are unique varieties, hard to find in the grocery store, and only available right now at the height of summer! You'll find us in front of Chapman's in Fairlee on Fridays, 3-6pm, and on Saturday at the Norwich Farmers' Market, 9-1pm.
