Norris Berry Farm began growing strawberries over 20 years ago as a sideline to dairy farming. The cows are now gone, but the berry business has grown over the years to encompass several acres of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, currants, and rhubarb for their Summer in Vermont preserves, as well as lots of vegetables. The farm is managed using IPM (Integrated Pest Management and organic methods, with conscious and careful management of each plant variety.
Norris Berry Farm is nestled in Monkton Vermont, with beautiful views of surrounding farms, hills and the Adirondacks. Just like fine wines, terroir influences the berries' flavor. Norma Norris attributes the outstanding flavors of her preserves to the silty loamy soil that she grows on.
