Wilder Farm is a 200 year old family farm in Lyndonville, Vermont. For several generations, it was a dairy farm and a well-known breeder of Milking Shorthorn cattle. We want to continue the Simpson family legacy of hard work and respect for the land.
For the past five years, we have worked to raise a diverse variety of fresh, tasty vegetables for CSA shares (Community Supported Agriculture) a farmer’s market and a farmstand. Our veggies are grown using organic and sustainable practices that increase soil fertility using minimal inputs.
The next generation of farmers, Wilson and Ben (ages 15 and 12) help with weeding, planting and harvest. The newest member of our family, our English Shepherd, Gracie, guards the animals, does rodent control and makes sure we are all where we need to be. Our cat, RayRay, is an excellent mouser and an all-around awesome guy.
We enjoy our commitment to growing delicious, healthy food for ourselves and our community, as well as offering educational opportunities for area students. We look forward to another great year of growth, health and community!
