The Kingsbury Farm in Warren is the result of a unique partnership between the Vermont Foodbank and the Vermont Land Trust. In early 2008, the Vermont Foodbank was chosen as new owners of the Kingsbury Farm by representatives of the town of Warren, the Mad River Valley Localvore Project, the Mad River Valley Planning District, Friends of the Mad River and Vermont Land Trust.
The land is leased to farmers Aaron Locker and Suzanne Slomin. In payment for the lease, the farmers provide the Vermont Foodbank with fresh produce for food shelves and meal sites up and down the Mad River Valley. They also run the Kingsbury Market Garden. New this year, the Kingsbury Market Garden is working with Burnt Rock Farm and Woods Market Garden to offer the Muddy Boots CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).
Along with providing high-quality fresh food, the Kingsbury Farm project also preserves valuable Vermont farm land and a historic farmstead, and protects the critical riverside habitat.
The Vermont Foodbank's Kingsbury Farm is located on Route 100, in the town of Warren. Directions to the farm can be found here.
Your contributions make this project possible. Please consider giving to the Vermont Foodbank today.
