Trillium Hill Farm
Trillium Hill Farm is a diverse farm in the Champlain Valley of Vermont. James, Sara, and daughter Ruby are the farmers, growing vegetables, raising grass-fed beef, and operating a farmstand. They aim to better the land they steward in the process of feeding our neighbors. The land has been in James' family since 1801. They are honored and proud to be farming this land and growing food for the community.
History in Hinesburg
The Story Behind Trillium Hill Farm.
Trillium Hill Farm is located on James' family's land, in the center of Hinesburg. James spent many hours as a child on the farm exploring its woods, running on its trails, sledding on its hills, and helping his family sugar in the spring. The land is currently owned by his mother and uncles, and has been passed down through the family for at least six generations. In 2006, James started a market garden on the land. In that first year James had one CSA member and sold vegetables at the Hinesburg Farmers' Market.
James met Sara soon after he decided to farm the family land, and together they have grown the farm significantly since that year. The farm has seen dairy goats, ducks, geese, and a large flock of laying hens. However, the focus of the farm has now shifted to growing vegetables for the local community through a farmstand and CSA, and wholesaling vegetables to nearby restaurants and stores. The farm is also home to a herd of grass-fed beef cattle which are slowly improving our land base.
