About​

When the soil is in good heart, it’s alive and healthy. 

When people are in good heart, they’re healthy and happy.

Health, flavor, joy, balance, liveliness — these things spring up from living soil.  And these are the simple things that Good Heart Farmstead is rooted in.  

Welcome. 

We’re so glad you’re here, and we invite you to pull up a seat at our table.

good heart farmstead was founded in 2013 by edge fuentes and katie spring with a mission to make local food accessible to everyone, no matter your income.

That’s why we put 10% of each Farm Share sold toward subsidized shares for low-income individuals and families. 

We call this the Good Heart Fund — Because everyone deserves to eat well.  

Through our CSA program, we offer a wide of certified organic vegetables, herbs, and flowers January through Thanksgiving.

We also partner with the NOFA-VT Farm Share Program, which further helps us subsidize Farm Shares for low-income Vermonters.

After all, food tastes better when it’s shared with many.  And people are happier with full bellies. 

There it is again — happiness springing up from the soil.


The Hearts Behind The Harvests

Edge Fuentes

(he/him)

if edge were a vegetable, he’d be a squash because it’s a noun and a verb.

And if you know Edge, you know he’s always on the move, quite like a verb himself. 

As the head grower and field manager, Edge brings the Farm Share to fruition each week through his steady seeding, cultivating, and harvesting. 

When he’s not in the fields, you’ll find him climbing up sheer rock faces, running with our dogs in the woods, or drinking cold-pressed coffee on quiet mornings. 

Katie Spring

(She/her)

if katie were a vegetable, she’d be snap peas: growing up and up, connecting sky and earth on tendrils much stronger than they appear.

As the creative director of the farm, Katie manages Farm Share communications, marketing, and landscaping, along with harvesting each week. 

When she’s not in the fields, behind a camera or computer, you’ll find her writing, reading, taking walks in the woods, and drinking black tea with a splash of milk on quiet mornings.

Waylon Spring

(He/him)

and that brings us to waylon…

The best crop we’ve ever grown, Waylon was born the same year as the farm, joining us in July of our first summer. 

As head of laughter and fun, Waylon reminds us when it’s time to take a play break.  He’s an expert pea and cherry tomato harvester, potato beetle squisher, and raspberry eater.

Greeter extraordinaire, you’ll be sure to feel welcomed by Waylon’s smile when you visit the farm.

Now that you’re here, we hope you’ll keep in touch!

The best way to do that is by signing up for Kate’s weekly emails — you’ll get all the dirt on what’s happening on the farm, the week’s harvest list and seasonal recipes to keep you eating well all year long. Subscribe for free here:
