Flywheel Farm, LLC East Montpelier, VT
Flywheel Farm is owned and operated by Justin Cote & Ansel Ploog. Justin and Ansel started farming in Maine as apprentices on a large organic market farm. They met while giving the farmers’ market tables a snazzy new coat of ‘Yellow Brick Road’. They formed Flywheel Farm in 2013, on leased land next to Woodbury Lake. They are both committed to sustainable agricultural practices and have certified their fresh produce organic through Vermont Organic Farmers, LLC. Additionally, they are working with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to combat streambank erosion on the farm and to create pollinator habitats for Vermont’s many pollinators. Justin and Ansel are Journey Farmers with the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont.
