Attention to detail is a must.
BDF is a diversified family farm in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. We operate a year-round food scrap collection route to collect organic discards from our community. We strive to put this organic material to as much positive use as we can. First, we blend the food scraps into a compost mix which provides forage for our laying hens. We then make compost and worm castings with the excess food and manure. Finally, we sell and use the resulting products to nourish our soils and crops. Our farm is firmly based in regenerative agricultural practices and the creation of sustainable food systems.
At BDF a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace is one where all crew members, volunteers, and customers—of all genders and gender identities, races, ethnicities, national origins, ages, sexual orientations, educations, or disabilities—feel valued and respected. We respect and value diverse life experiences and heritages and work to ensure that all voices are valued and heard. To foster an inclusive farm community, BDF does not tolerate marginalizing behavior. We're committed to a thriving work environment that yields exceptional products and collective growth.
