Check Out Great Local CSAs for Your Summer Cooking Needs!

CSAs or Community-Supported Agriculture is a great way of participating in the localvore movement that lessens the distance from farm to table of your food while supporting local farmers. We are lucky to have plenty of options for CSAs. Two popular choices can be picked up right at UVM and in downtown Burlington. Check them out below.

Pro-Tip: Depending on your needs, you can sign-up for shares for as little as a few weeks and up to the whole year.

The mission of Cat Farm is to model sustainable farming practices through a working vegetable and fruit farm that provides educational and research opportunities for the UVM community. Students are integral in carrying out all activities of the farm...[and] also contributes to the local food system of the university by marketing the student-grown produce back to the UVM community through a campus farm stand, CSA shares, and wholesale accounts with University Dining Services. Learn more about Cat Farm and sign-up for CSA here.

Also, check out the Intervale Food Hub for another great local option!

All About Ticks: From FrontPorchForum


Tick populations are increasing in Vermont from year to year according to the Department of Health, and our season is beginning. While there are many types of ticks, we worry most about Blacklegged ticks - they cause the most infections. Your first thought about tick-borne diseases is probably Lyme disease, and this has been the most common disease in Vermont transmitted by blacklegged ticks, but we are seeing more of other diseases that ticks carry. These include anaplasmosis, babesiosis and Powassan disease.

Check for ticks especially under the arms, in and around the ears, inside the belly button, behind the knees, between the legs, around the waist, and on the hairline and scalp. Instructions for safe removal of ticks as well as other information about ticks can be found on the Department of Health website. You can use the DOH Tick Tracker to report tick sightings on the website and to see where others have reported tick exposures/sightings.
