Farmers Working Together

For a clean Lake Champlain and thriving agriculture in Vermont


Our Story & Mission

We are farmers. We know that some of the best things in life start with a single seed, and with care and cultivation, can flourish into something much larger and grander. And so it can be said of us. We started as a little seed of an idea between a handful of farmers in 2012. With the help of UVM Extension staff in Middlebury, Vermont and a Conservation Innovation Grant from Vermont Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), we became the Champlain Valley Farmer Coalition. Today, we are dedicated to protecting water quality in Lake Champlain and supporting a thriving agricultural economy in Vermont.
