Milkweed Farm 

Brattleboro, VT

Milkweed Farm is a diversified vegetable and flower farm in Brattleboro, Vermont, currently located on leased land at the Vermont Business Agricultural Center (VABEC). Jonah Mossberg proudly hails from the "quiet corner" of Northeastern Connecticut, where he spent his childhood romping through his family's blueberry patch and ignoring his mother's vegetable garden entirely. By happenstance, Jonah spent a summer as a farm hand during college and his life was forever changed. Jonah started the farm in 2017, after over a decade of working on small diversified farms/gardens including Noyo Hill Farm in Fort Bragg, California, Tobacco Road Farm in Lebanon, Connecticut and the Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley, California. Jonah is also the maker of the documentary film, "Out Here," which is about queer farmers in the U.S. See www.outheremovie.comfor more on that project.
