Jericho Settlers' Farm in Jericho, Vermont
October 07, 2009
Jericho Settlers’ Farm is a small working farm committed to growing local food for the community. The farm, located on Barber Farm Road in Jericho, was established in 2002 by Emilie Alexander, her daughter Christa Alexander, and Christa’s husband Mark Fasching.
Last year, my husband and I participated in the farm’s community supported agriculture (CSA) program by purchasing locally-raised beef and fresh vegetables for the winter and summer seasons. As in most places, CSAs have become incredibly popular in Vermont in recent years, especially ones that are offered in the summer months.
Jericho Settlers’ Farm also has fresh eggs for sale at its farmstand and sells locally-grown produce at farmers’ markets in the area. Interestingly, the farm also has an art gallery on the premises. The gallery includes works of noted landscape artist Emile A. Gruppe, as well as watercolors and photography by local artists.
