LEWIS CREEK FARM
Lewis Creek Farm in Starksboro, Vermont has been in operation since 1981. Hank Bissell is the owner and operater of this 150 acre farm that sits in a valley at the foot of the Green Mountains, about 20 miles from both Burlington and Middlebury. Lewis Creek, with its swimming holes and trout fishing, runs through 50 acres of  lush river bottom soil.

Lewis Creek Farm is a leader in sustainable farming. We rotate crops, practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM), grow green manure crops for soil fertility and employ extensive tractor and hand cultivation. Due to our widespread use of preventative measures, our need for pesticides is low, and many of our crops are grown without any sprays. Of the pesticides we do use, most are  approved for organic production. While we are very adamant about minimizing  sprays, we’re also very serious about keeping prices reasonable and competitive. Though we do not claim that any of our produce is organic, it is worth noting that most crops are either unsprayed or only have organic sprays.

Our farmstand is open every day from May through November.  In addition, Saturdays we’re at the Burlington Farmers’ Market. We make regular wholesale deliveries to both Burlington and Middlebury on Tuesdays and Fridays, from June through November. Since 1981 we have developed a reputation for top quality, reliable service, and competitive pricing.
