Dancing Bear Farm                    Since 1981

    Dancing Bear Farm is located in the town of Leyden, Mass. On the border of Vermont, we are in the foothills of the Green Mountains, at about 1200 feet of altitude. The farm is 17 acres of hay, pasture, fields, ponds and trees. We cultivate about 5 acres of vegetables each year. Our two greenhouses (2880 sq. ft. total) produce starter plants in the spring as well as cherry tomatoes and sweet peppers thru the summer and fall, and baby lettuce greens during the winter.

    In 2008 we started growing fig trees in one of the greenhouses. We now have 6 fig trees planted in the ground in the greenhouse and hundreds in pots for sale and outside production.

    Our goal is to produce high quality food while being a steward of the land. From our start back in ’81 we have grown by traditional, organic methods. No “chemical” fertilizers, pesticides, nor herbicides have ever been used on our farm and never will be. While we are no longer certified organic, we have always grown with organic methods and we always will. For more on that, go to this page.

    We invite you to browse around the site to find out more about us. You’ll find lots of pictures, a few movies, information and opinions. If you have any questions, please contact us.
