ghost island farm
about the farm
For Rusty Gordon, founding Ghost Island Farm in 2012 was an outgrowth of 20 years of managing a neighboring farm, Whippoorwill, and running its CSA program, the largest at the time. Rusty believes that farming and customers help each other. Customers help the farm sustain and the farm helps them, by being here, by growing what customers want, and by giving them a good product. He takes pride in growing 70 varieties of tomatoes, 20 varieties of kale, baby salad mixes and other mixed produce, all using organic methods. The seed is untreated and non-GMO, they use Vermont Compost organic soil for seedlings and fertilize with North Country Organics for crops. Insects are controlled naturally and except for water, they do not spray their crops with anything except water. Visitors to Ghost Island’s farm stand will experience Rusty’s sense of humor and if you’re a CSA member, be able to pick a bouquet of flowers to take home, on the house.
