Philo Ridge Farm is a 400-acre historic farm that brings together the rich cultural past of the region to develop the local agricultural economy and respect the ecosystem. We strive to be a beautiful, functional farm at the forefront of research, innovation, and conversation around our food. The property is used for a mixture of activities and operations including: produce and flower production, a diversified livestock and haying operation, and a growing food service and hospitality program. We are in our third year of production at the farm and plan on expanding our operation soon to include an on-farm market, event space and processing facility.

The market will provide a retail outlet for all that we grow and raise on our beautiful farm. We will have a prepared foods counter, grass-fed butcher shop, a full-service cheese program, as well as sell farm-fresh produce alongside grocery and specialty housewares that emphasize Vermont's local artisans. Connected to our market, we have a fully restored barn that will offer a range of educational workshops and events that we hope will further the conversation around our food and provide fun and engaging activities for our community.

We believe in treating our employees, animals, and the soil with respect and care, and we strive to create a supportive and flexible work environment, one that will encourage the exchange of ideas, as we want all of our staff members to be able to contribute in their own way to the growth and future directions of our market and company at large. All of our employees embody the spirit of sharing, growing together and education.
