What makes a community? Ask Linda from Renaissance Farm in Burlington. She believes in supporting and promoting the local community. That includes growing her own organic vegetables in the 2 greenhouses she has behind her barn. Her passion is two-fold – her garden and educating people on where their food comes from. “You can go to the grocery store and buy food, but where does it really come from? “.
She currently has a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program that can sustain 15 families with fresh vegetables for the season. It's on a first-come-first serve basis and her goal is to increase that number next year. For more information visit the Renaissance Farm website.
Renaissance Farm has been in business for 5 years and currently employs 5 people including 2 culinary school interns who will continue on to Manchester Community College Culinary program. In addition to selling fresh local fruits and vegetables, you'll find lots of great baked goods. Let me tell you - her pies are some of the best I've had!
