Not possible without…

We are often struck by the color and variety on the farm during this season – the peak of growth in the Northeast. In celebration we have compiled pictures of some beautiful people and harvests around the farm these days. Abundance Acres would not be the organization we are without our many hard working, dedicated…

Rain, Rain

All this rain has put the ‘pause button’ on our crops. We have never had this much constant rain since we began farming, and many ‘ol-time Vermonter’s agree that this has been an abnormal amount of water. The raised beds in the fields look like islands of lush vegetation surrounded by water, and volunteers must…

Greenhouse Completed!

Thanks to all of the helping hands and those who contributed financially to replacing our collapsed Greenhouse this year. We have finally completed it and the tomatoes and peppers are now growing splendidly. Our original greenhouse collapsed last winter after an unprecedented snowfall.

Greenhouse Raising

Just like the old ‘barn raisings’ the community came together to help us lift 13 arches in place to construct our replacement 30’x50’ greenhouse that collapsed under the sudden 40” of snow that dumped during one storm this winter. While all is not yet complete having the arches in place gets us well on the…

Dry Summer

While the fields are thriving in this unseasonably warm and dry summer, they are at the expense of the pond. The water level has been dropping as each time we irrigate we use around 2500 gallons for the whole farm. Each time it rains we are thankful!

Planting Begins!

We are thankful for every sunny day we get as the ground is drying out after winter. Things are now dry enough to start planting some cold hardy transplants out! All our leeks and onions are now in the ground. Greenhouses are also starting to be seeded in preparation for our first harvests in June.

Spring Seedlings

Despite the 3″ of wet snow we woke up to today our seedlings are well underway and starting to spill over out of our sun room! We are slowly beginning their transition outside to the seedling house and as weather permits to the fields. It is always a touch and go time of year as…

Scenery

Beautiful scenery is close at hand living and working around Abundance Acres! The trails are always open for walks and strolls. Come enjoy this small part of creation.

Volunteers 2019

Abundance Acres would be no where without its volunteers. We have many groups that come to help throughout the growing season. Some come once or twice, others come every week to help out. Enjoy a collage of various activities around the farm. Many hands make the work lighter! Thank you everyone. We couldn’t do it…

Serve 2019

A group called SERVE returned to Abundance Acres and the surrounding community to help with various projects. Middle school and High School kids helped on the farm in various projects and also ended their respective weeks with a campfire and evening gathering time down at the pavilion. Thanks SERVE for all your help at Abundance…

Chicken Harvest 2019

Our first chicken harvest of 2019 was a hit! We are excited this year to offer our chickens in shrink bags which makes them last longer in the freezer, look uniform and was a ton easier to package! Our average of 5.3lbs a bird is also perfect for roasting.

Spring Sunrise

I had to share this amazing spring morning lighting! The sun streaming through the new leaves almost looked like fall colors! Glorious morning to be alive!
