ABOUT UPPER MEADOWS FARM

Begun in 1987, Upper Meadows Farm has been devoted to sustainable holistic agriculture. Joining the Certified Organic community in 1991, we have maintained certification ever since. From our beginning on 4 1/2 acres we have evolved to our current size of 153 acres, all certified organic. We have expanded our vegetable production from the traditional "kitchen garden," which remains as one of our fields, to over 12 acres today, that serve our CSA membership producing over 200 varieties of vegetables, herbs and fruit. We are gradually expanding our Apple and Pear orchard. We have devoted an additional 1/2 acre to perennial flower production. We make hay when the sun shines and rotate our grain crops, which have been barley, oats, wheat, rye, spelt, flax, buckwheat, and corn. All our livestock are pasture based. We are always working to improve and expand our pasture which we consider the foundation of our agricultural health.
