List of Burlington-Area CSAs 

Find a Farm

Locals may remember 2007 as the year community supported agriculture (CSA) really took off in Burlington - and created a mini-crisis. At the same time as the burgeoning "localvore movement" multiplied the demand for shares from local farms, David Zuckerman and Rachel Nevitt of Full Moon Farm took a yearlong sabbatical, leaving their 180 loyal customers to seek out new sources of tomatoes, basil and corn on the cob. As the harvest drew closer, consumers scrambled to find farms that still had slots, and everybody realized there weren't enough shares to go around.

Don't expect demand to outstrip supply this year. Not only is Full Moon Farm back and bigger than ever, but almost every Chittenden County CSA has increased capacity in hopes of selling shares to everyone who wants one. Zuckerman estimates that in 2007, around 1000 shares were available; this year, there are more than 1500.

To help customers and farmers team up, Zuckerman took a break from farming and legislating to compile a list of independently owned Chittenden County farms offering CSA shares, along with the areas they serve. That list is reprinted below:
