Farm Focus: Evening Song Farm

Phil Gurley

Ryan Wood Beauchamp and Kara Fitzgerald established Evening Song Farm in Cuttingsville, Vermont after running a small CSA in northeastern Pennsylvania.  Their very first season in Vermont was cut short, however, after the loss of their farm to Hurricane Irene. Undeterred by Irene, they reestablished themselves, moving the entire farm uphill.  Ryan and Kara are deeply nourished by working with the earth, and grateful to spend their days as farmers.

Evening Song farm grows about 5 acres of vegetables for CSA (community supported agriculture), farmers’ markets, restaurants, co-ops, schools, and camps.  They specialize in varieties that are unique, heirloom, and visually appealing, as well as those selected for exquisite flavor.  Their biggest goal with their CSA is to provide a flexible, convenient option for people who may be new to CSA.

Kara and Ryan are committed to growing healthy food that is nourishing to their customers, their community, and the earth.  They focus on prioritizing the health of their soil through techniques such as cover cropping, crop rotation, composts, micro nutrient foliar drenches, biodynamic field sprays (such as fermented compost teas made of wild harvested medicinal herbs), and providing habitat for beneficial insects. Their goal is to create a healthy farm ecosystem that doesn't depend on toxic inputs.

We are so thankful to have such dedicated and passionate farmers  as part of our community!
