Learn why vegetable and fruit Farmer, Dave Hartshorn, became certified organic over 25 years ago. What is organic agriculture and how is it different (better) than conventional? Listen to the history of Hartshorn Farm where Dave has lived his entire life. He's also a fifth generation sugarmaker and co-owner of Green Mountain Harvest Hydroponics right next door. Hartshorn Farm is a commercial certified organic farm. Together with his life partner Amy, they run it as an educational agricultural center in the Mad River Valley with food festivals, experiential food & farm tours, farm camp for kids, workshops, and more. Check out the maple sugarhouse. Find out how maple syrup was discovered. Pick some blueberries. Meet our horses. Take a ride on our new cow train. For dinner the wood fired pizza oven will be hot and ready 
to make delicious pizzas topped with all the amazing veggies grown right on the farm. (There is a charge for the pizza, salad, and beverage.)
