Local Food Production




Local farms define rural character, maintain a link with the past, and promise a more sustainable future. VCS has worked for decades to conserve our prime farm soils and rejuvenate local farming using Agricultural Preservation Restrictions (APRs) and other tools. Building partnerships with towns and colleagues has been a formula for success at places like the new Ag Hall, Nip 'n' Tuck, Morning Glory, Native Earth and Katama Farms.

>Whippoorwill Farm (CSA)

Whippoorwill Farm has been producing quality vegetables for Island residents for over twenty years. We grow all our crops without synthetic fertilizers or chemicals. As our business has evolved over the years, we have supplied restaurants, super markets, farmers’ markets, a farm stand and our CSA members. Currently, our main focus is on serving our CSA members.
