Farmer Services

NOFA-VT supports farmers as the foundation of our working lands, local economies and agricultural heritage.  By growing organic agriculture, we foster the ecologically based management of our food production, while expanding markets for Vermont farms and food businesses. 

NOFA-VT offers services and programs that help farmers at all levels of development to reach their business and quality of life goals.  Certified organic, transitioning to organic, and non-certified farmers using sustainable practices can access these services.
