Snowberry Farm is a small, diversified organic farm operated by Jesse Poe and Cassidy Colston. We began our farming journey in Vermont during the spring of 2018 with the goal of providing the community with sustainable, local products. Our main focus as farmers now is to produce affordable fruits, vegetables, herbs, eggs and meat while using sustainable, ethical and organic practices.
All of our vegetables, herbs and fruit are certified organic by Vermont Organic Farmers. We grow a wide variety of crops ranging from cherry tomatoes to cilantro. Our latest focus has been on growing more varieties of fruit such as honey berries, apples, pears, peaches, raspberries and more! We are a strictly no-spray farm, so for us that means we do all of our weeding by hand and take preventative measures to combat pests. Interested in learning more about our practices? Feel free to contact us!
Our free-ranging flock consists of a wide variety of chickens: Austrolorps, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, Easter Eggers and many more. Please contact us to pre-order your laying hens or chicks today. Our chickens are not fed an organic diet.
We currently raise a wide array of heritage breed pigs. We give them plenty of room to roam around, which ensures that they remain happy and healthy! All of our pigs are fed sustainably with a mix of certified organic vegetables from right here on the farm as well as a variety of spent brewers grains from Bent Hill Brewery. Depending on the time of the year they could be eating apples, radishes, carrots, beets, turnips, lettuce, cabbage, pumpkins, squash, kale, tomatoes, acorns, pea shoots, popcorn, maple sap, etc.. Although our pork is not certified organic, around half of their diet consists of certified organic vegetables and non-gmo grains.
We have Alpine and Alpine/Nubian crosses. These amazing animals are great at eating down the weeds at the edges of our fields, while adding a bit of fertility.
