Agriculture

Farming is an essential component of Vermont's working landscape, providing jobs and food grown by people you know. Our partnerships with farms keep our land in sustainable production and provide an opportunity for students to get their hands dirty as they learn about farming through our youth programs.

We keep farming alive and healthy in Danby by leasing land, housing, and retail space to our farmers. High infrastructure and start-up costs are often insurmountable barriers for people who want to start farming. We are establishing a fund to assist with these costs through the sale of our conservation easements, ensuring that agriculture will be a valuable and sustainable piece of the local economy.

To inquire about farming opportunities, please contact Jesse Pyles at jesse@smokeyhouse.org or 802-293-2300.
