Black Dirt Farm is a 240-acre diversified family farm in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. We collect food scraps from our community for feeding hens, make compost and worm castings with the excess food and manure, and use them to nourish our soils and crops. Our farm is firmly based in regenerative agricultural practices and the creation of sustainable food systems.
