Organic Farm & Apartment for Rent in Southern Vermont
LAND & MARKET DESCRIPTION:
Anjali Farm is located on 7 acres of south facing slope in South Londonderry, Vermont, Zone 4. It was started as a dairy in 1840 until 1965, hayed until 1980, pastured until 1990, mowed till 1995 and lay fallow until 2000 when Anjali Farm began cultivating the land from 2000-2015. We raised chickens, vegetables, mushrooms, culinary and medicinal herbs, hops, as well as perennial fruit crops. The fields have been in a rotation of cover-crop and fallow for the last three seasons with only perennial fruit and hoop-house production in place. It was NOFAVT certified organic from 2000-2014, and we have used biodynamic practices since 2000. We have many long-term restaurant clients within 30 miles. The bustling 45 member West River Farmers’ Market is a mile down the road! The business/ sales prospects of Brattleboro, Bellows Falls, Manchester Center and Rutland are all within a 45 min. drive or less. There are over 100 restaurants and food coops in these four towns combined. Strong retail revenue from onsite farm stand and CSA share sales with an opportunity for pick your own fruit, workshop space and green house or farm-field dinners all possible. We specialized in heirloom seed saving and have many varieties to pass along for growing and selling.
