    At Farmers To You we are lucky to partner with three smaller family owned Vermont dairies that produce a variety of milk. Strafford Organic Creamery sends us Whole, 2% and 1% homogenized milk among other offerings. While Rogers Farmstead and Larson Farm and Creamery both produce strictly what we refer to as creamline or cream top milk for us to enjoy year round. Some might recognize this type of milk as non-homogenized.

A package that holds precious seeds, stones, and pits safe inside. Somehow these trees know that other species are drawn to intense sweetness. These packages are then taken, eaten, and then the seeds are dropped in a new place to start the cycle over again

    This past Monday evening my partner, Martina, and I were walking through the fields of my farm property picking hypericum, also known as St. John’s Wort. Each summer I make a medicinal oil from this beautiful yellow flower. It was a beautiful late August early evening in Vermont with a cool breeze and a bright blue sky and golden light.

    We have had a busy week here in Vermont. Having outgrown our warehouse in Berlin, we’ve now moved to a new warehouse with room to grow further.

    This past week we did the impossible; right after packing orders last week, we were able to move to our new hub in time to pack your orders for this week!
