Our Hosts

Birdsfoot Organic Farm and CSA
Birdsfoot Farm has been growing certified organic vegetables, flowers, and herbs for over 40 years. In addition to our lively CSA we also sell at the Canton Farmers Market, the Potsdam Food Coop and North Country Grown Cooperative. Birdsfoot Farm is an intentional community of nine adults and two children. The Veggie Business is set up as a partnership with seasonal workers.  The Little River School is also an ongoing concern of some community members.

A potluck dish to share
- a place card noting the ingredients is helpful to those with food sensitivities/preferences.
A place setting (plate or bowl, fork and knife, cup) if you can (not everyone has place settings for this many guests, and it will save the host and helpers from washing so many dishes!)
Walking shoes (mud season is here!) and outdoor attire if you wish to tour the farm and gardens.
Your good thoughts, questions, and skills to share!

Thanks so much for your community spirit and connectedness! 
We hope to see you there!
