Additional Information

The Intervale Center Farms Program has been incubating new farm businesses for over 25 years on land in Burlington, VT. Our program provides land, infrastructure, mentorship, and business planning assistance to farmers in the incubator program. Tenants are expected to be responsible stewards of the land they are leasing and the shared infrastrucure as well as comfortable farming in a community setting.

The acreage listed is divided between four parcels. Three of them have about 1.5 acres each and one parcel is 0.5 acres. Farmers can submit a business plan for any combination of the parcels. See the images or our website for more information on each parcel. 

The program has a 5 year duration and after 5 years farms receieve support from the Intervale Center to transition off the land to leased or purchased land outside of the Intervale. 

Interested applicants should visit our website for more information on application process as well as the application packet.
