The Farm at VYCC

The Farm at VYCC (Vermont Youth Conservation Corps) is a non-profit, educational farm that develops youth leaders through experiences in sustainable agriculture. The majority of the food produced is distributed to Vermonters experiencing food-insecurity through our Health Care Share, an innovative CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) partnership with local hospitals. Working together, we provide a weekly share of fresh vegetables and poultry to around 400 families in need throughout Vermont. Through cultivating responsible youth, we work together to feed and educate our community!
