Dutchess Farm

Come join us as we celebrate our 20th year of offering Farm Shares! We are the Chamberlain family. Along with our experienced and dedicated local staff, we farm ten acres, five of which are in vegetable production each year. Dutchess Farm also includes nine greenhouses that extend and enhance the season.

2014 is our 28th year of vegetable production and this experience helps us to provide you with the best produce possible. Our entire operation is located in Vermont, which includes our home in Castleton and our fields in Poultney. We participate in the Rutland Farmers' Market on Saturdays, as well as selling retail, wholesale, and CSA shares. Many different CSA share options are available to fit your needs, both inCastleton and Rutland, and we also deliver to select businesses.

At the core of our sustainable farming practices are cover cropping and crop rotations. These maintain proper soil and plant health to ensure sustainability and the healthiest vegetables possible for you and your family for years to come. We welcome your interest and inquiries.

Saturday Rutland Farmers' Market

Every Saturday during the growing season from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

This market has a great selection of food, vegetable, and local products vendors. It is a producer-only market so it ensures you know where the products you are buying came from. We are located on the corner closest to Walmart.

In Castleton at our share pickup location

Every Tuesday during the growing season from 3 - 6:30 p.m.

Located in Castleton, the first house on the left on North Road from the intersection with Main Street.

This is where the Castleton share holders pick up their shares every week. Shareholders get first preference on vegetables, so only plentiful vegetables are available for sale here. If you want the full selection of vegetables without having to drive to the Rutland market, we have many share options available.

Please contact us if you are a restaurant or institution that would be interested in a wholesale arrangement for vegetable quantities.
