Elmer Farm is a conserved 90 acre farm located in East Middlebury. We grow 8 acres of mixed vegetables, grains, and flowers. Annually, the farm is Inspected and certified by Vermont Organic Farmers (VOF). This reassures our members that the crops are grown responsibly and safely without the use of synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides.
Like so many of the old farmsteads in Addison County, the Elmer Farm has a long heritage of providing food for it’s community. This farm belonged to the Elmer family since the early 1800’s. The receding glaciers bestowed the farm with a wonderful mix of fertile soils, almost thirty acres of sandy loam, excellent for growing vegetables and grains.
We, Spencer and Jennifer Blackwell, along with our children, Angus, Ida and Mabel, are proud to grow vegetables for our community, neighbors and friends in Addison County. We value hard work and quality of life. We are committed to our community through various farm to school efforts as well as gleaning for local food agencies.
