Meet Your Farmers

HHIF Islands Farms CSA is a multi-farm CSA offering products almost exclusively from the Lake Champlain Islands

We have a few new members joining us this week, so I'll repeat some of the information. From this week on, I'll be sending out our newsletter to all of our CSA members every week. So even though some of you are getting your share every other week, you won't miss out on any of the news or recipes.

We'd like to introduce you to the farmers who are providing food for your share this week! Click on each farm photo/logo to go to each farm's website. We'll be sharing more in our weekly newsletters and on our new website ( about these wonderful folks and others who will be joining us.

Health Hero Island Farm is a four farmer operation: Eric and Hannah Noel and Joan Falcao and Bob Fireovid. HHIF is producing some food for our Islands Farms CSA, but is also bringing other area farms together to create our first multi-farm year-round CSA.

We'd like to shout out a special thank you to the first three who decided to support this multi-farm CSA idea last fall when we were writing our proposal to VLT and SHLT.

Even without all of the ingredients, let the recipes spark your imagination! I find that just looking at recipes helps me think of my own new ways to use vegetables.
