Farms and Farm Stands in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom

The Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, as a part of the Green Mountain State, has rolling pastures with soil rich in nutrients and rainfall that allows for an abundance and variety of vegetables to be grown throughout the region, despite the short growing season. The mountain ranges collect moisture that brings plenty of rain to rolling acres of corn and pastures for grazing.

We also have plenty of Sugar Maple Trees whose sap produce maple syrup. Maple syrup is simply the sap from Sugar Maple reduced 40 to 1. In other words, after collecting 40 gallons of run-off from Maple Sugar Trees one can make one gallon of pure maple syrup. There are no additives or preservatives in Vermont's Maple Syrup.

 

Up here, you'll find acres of corn and cattle. The area commercially produces milk for well known food makers such as Stoneybrook and Cabot, as well as corn for cattle feed and human consumption.

Mountainview Dairy B & B in Irasburg, VTLocal farms sell their produce to passers-by. In mid summer look for raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and peas, among the many others mid-summer vegetables. In the fall, corn and apples are harvested, along with squash, pumpkin and tomatoes. Some dairy farms sell milk products such as cream and cheese to the general public. In fact, you might even find goat's cheese

The Northeast Kingdom is geographically located along a cusp of weather patterns, allowing for extreme lightening storms and changes in temperature during summer and winter. In fact, it might rain in January with temperatures reaching 40 degrees one day and then reach a low of negative 20 degrees the next, depending upon wind's direction. Nitrogen is released into the soil from the intense lightening storms that occur during severe showers and adds to the fertility of the soil.
