Rebop Farm is a small, diversified, grass based, and primarily organic practice livestock and dairy operation in Brattleboro, Vermont. We focus on producing high quality products using intensive rotational grazing practices, interspecies grazing, and systems stacking. Year round, we manage a small herd of Jersey dairy cows for raw milk production, as well as a 55 ewe, avg 100 lamb flock of Katahdin sheep, bee hives, 500 tap sugar bush, and seasonally produce 1700 mixed poultry, and 80 feeder pigs. We slaughter 1000 poultry on-farm yearly. We believe that these systems and diversity of animals allow us to be better stewards of our soils and watershed; of our animals’ health and well being, and ultimately, the health of our customers and the community we feed.
Our products are distributed through a raw milk and meat CSA, restaurant accounts, and an on-farm retail store that we stock with our products, as well as over 90 other farms’, bakers, and specialty food producers’ products. The farm also maintains a small event space that hosts farm dinners, concerts, workshops, and provides space for other organizations to hold events.
