River Berry Farm

River Berry Farm is a family owned organic small fruit and vegetable farm operating on the Lamoille River in Fairfax, Vermont since 1992. We are Jane Sorensen, David Marchant and our two children, Huck and Ada, along with our farm crew of 8 - 10 seasonal employees. We grow 50 acres of organic vegetables, 3 acres of organic strawberries, 1 1/2 acres of organic raspberries, 18,000 square feet of greenhouse crops and 100 organic layer chickens.

We market our produce through our on-farm stand and CSA, the Burlington Farmers Market, local health food stores and to regional markets via Deep Root Organic Growers Cooperative. Our farm stand is open from May 1st through Halloween from 8 am to 6 pm everyday.

The season starts off with the greenhouses opening May 1st with annual and perennial flower transplants and organic vegetable and herb transplants. Then organic strawberries ripen for pick your own around the third week of June followed by summer and fall bearing raspberries. The stand is well stocked with organic vegetables as they ripen in the field. We use many season extension techniques to keep the produce available as early and for as long as we can. Great fresh eggs from our organic layers are available at the stand all season.
