Dancing Bear Farm

img1Dancing Bear Farm is located in the town of Leyden, Massachusetts. On the border of Vermont, we are in the foothills of the Green Mountains, at about 1200 feet. The farm is 17 acres of hay, pasture, fields, ponds and trees. We cultivate about 2 acres of vegetables each year. Our two greenhouses (2952sq. ft. total) produce Starter Plants in the spring as well as Cherry Tomatoes, Heirloom Tomatoes, Sweet and Hot Peppers thru the summer and fall, and Figs and Fig Trees in season. Our fields produce Garlic, Onions, Pumpkins, Husk Tomatoes and other vegetables.

In 2008 we started growing fig trees in one of the greenhouses. We now have 7 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 1981 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 have chosen to no longer pursue organic certification, we have always used organic methods and we always will.

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