Half Pint Farm Wholesale & Market (Produce, specialty: baby vegetables)
Spencer & Mara Welton
As small as the name suggests, Mara and Spencer cultivate 1.5 acres of sandy silt loam Intervale soil. Half Pint Farm is dedicated to growing high quality baby and specialty vegetables using bio- intensive methods designed to build a healthy soil, while providing high yield. They have experimented with these methods, utilizing them in a variety of climates, from the tropical South Pacific as U.S. Peace Corps volunteers to the high plains of Colorado, to graduate school in agro-ecology in Western Pennsylvania. Mara & Spencer are also using hoop-house structures to extend the growing season and increase the quality of their produce. Half Pint Farm produce can be found at area farmers markets, local restaurants, caterers and natural grocers in the Burlington area.
