A Farm for New Americans
Pine Island Community Farm is located in Colchester. It is a place where New Americans—people who originally came to Vermont as refugees—can produce food and enjoy the land. The farm is owned by the Vermont Land Trust and is home to farm businesses and community gardens. The businesses share land, buildings, and equipment.
Many people who come here as refugees have farming roots. Pine Island Community Farm is a place where people can be on the land again and grow or buy food that is hard to get in Vermont. It’s a space where people can experience a Vermont that feels more like home.
