Eating healthy, eating local, & supporting local farms is easy thanks to Dartmouth’s Workplace CSA program! 3 farms will be delivering CSA shares full of fresh produce to locations across campus. Don’t forget to sign up for your favorite farm or the one delivering closest to where you park!
More info on Root5 Farm:
Root 5 Farm is located in Fairlee, Vermont. They deliver fresh, organic produce throughout the Upper Valley from May thru December.
Root5 Farm grows over 150 varieties of vegetables. CSA members receive a weekly box filled with a diverse selection of freshly harvested organic vegetables, herbs, and some specialty items like melons, ginger, dry beans, and sauerkraut.
Weekly boxes will be filled with 8-10 seasonal items. A share is designed to feed 2-4 people with a mixed diet, or 1-2 vegetarians by providing all of their vegetable needs for one week. The shares are often most abundant during the heavy harvest months of August, September, and October.
For more information, check out their beautiful website here!

Hello and happy spring from Sweetland Farm in Norwich!
Outdoors the weather is bouncing back and forth in true March fashion, but across the river and inside Sweetland’s greenhouses it’s truly beginning to feel like spring.
As we anticipate the upcoming growing season, we’re ready to open signups for our 2017 vegetable CSA!* We’re excited to begin our 6th season of growing great produce and delivering CSA shares to the Dartmouth community. We hope you’ll join us for a summer of good food and farm fun!
Sweetland offers half- and full-sized CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares, delivered Tuesday afternoons right to Dartmouth’s Fairchild Tower for convenient faculty, staff, and student pickup. Our CSA runs from mid-May through mid-October, offering 22 weeks of produce at an average weekly price of just $18 or $27, depending on share size. Our goal is to save you 30% on produce, compared to market prices. In addition to a diverse weekly box packed with the freshest produce, our shareholders also have free access to our plentiful pick-your-own flower, herb and vegetable gardens just 7 miles from campus, and are invited to visit the farm for seasonal events and self-guided tours. You can read more about our share options and become a shareholder on our website. For planning purposes it’s helpful if you sign up by late March, and we do offer a split payment option, so don’t delay!
More detailed information about the CSA is on our website http://www.sweetlandfarmvt.com/, photos from last season are on Facebook and Instagram, and we always like to hear from you with questions or ideas!
