Lewis Creek Farm
Lewis Creek Farm in Starksboro has been owned and operated by Hank Bissell since 1981. Hank has been a leader and a pioneer in the field of Sustainable Agriculture, incorporating sustainable practices into his farming before it became a larger trend.
With the help of a crew that peaks at 14 in July and August, he produces over 50 different vegetables on 35 acres. City Market/Onion River Coop was one of Lewis Creek’s first customers in 1981 and the two organizations have grown together over the years. Some of the most visible items you will see from Lewis Creek are spinach, carrots, potatoes and cauliflower. Lewis Creek seasonally supplies the Coop with over 70 different produce items (including all the different varieties).
Look for some of these varieties now in our Produce Department. And if you’re ever passing through Starksboro, stop by the farm stand and say hello. Also, check out their website for quality agricultural education!
