Nordic Farm continues farming under the famous red roof

How Brazil is reforming a public fund to finance broadband expansion

“We are excited to be part of continuing the development of sustainable agriculture in Vermont,” says Jeff Kozak, CEO of WhistlePig. “We currently use our own grain, water, and timber to produce triple terroir whiskey on our own 500-acre farm in Shoreham, Vt. We believe the new Nordic farm will give us a chance to tell this story to more people and share how, through regenerative farming, malting and barrel aging on site, we can push the boundaries of what American whiskey can be.” WhistlePig Whiskey is currently in discussions with Nordic Farm on multiple initiatives including the cultivation of heritage grain varieties and implementing a complete ‘single-malt’ supply chain that would include malting, distilling and tasting on site.

Vermont Regenerative Agricultural Center, a new 501c3 non-profit advocacy and networking organization that will focus on promoting healthier working landscapes and  regenerative farming practices. It will serve as a welcome center selling local farm products as well as an education center hosting the Cyrus Pringle museum;
The Vermont Grain Cooperative, made up of seven businesses operating cooperatively to help build Vermont’s new grain industry; implementing innovative practices in soil regeneration, planting, growing, malting, brewing, distilling multiple grain varieties.
The Vermont Botanical Commons, consisting of multiple ventures that will support business incubation, development, and R&D for the botanical industry including growing and processing hops, hemp, botanicals and mushrooms;
The Farm Energy Innovation Center, which will aim to combine the latest technologies in renewable energy generation, storage, grid optimization and carbon sequestration; the goal is to be Vermont’s largest ‘carbon negative farm’ while showcasing reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and increased carbon sequestration.
and public access walking and Nordic ski trails, picnic and bird watching areas, and a seasonal farmers market. The Nordic project will include:

Over the past two years, Nordic Farm transitioned from a dairy to become home to multiple agri-related businesses like Sweet Sound Aquaculture, Slowfire Bakery, Foam Brewers’ House of Fermentology barrel aging, and a new regional malthouse. These businesses will continue in the new project, and will be joined by WhistlePig Whiskey, Nitty Gritty Grain Company, Kria Botanicals, Shrubbly sparkling shrubs, and Vermont Compost Company.  “From timber, to sheep, to grain, to cows, to value-added dairy, to local organic food Vermont’s working landscape constantly evolves,” says Will Raap, CEO of the new Nordic Farm. “We hope Nordic Farm can continue to support that evolution with growing and value-added processing of grain and botanicals plus harvesting renewable energy, incubating new model businesses and regenerating our soils and ecosystems.”

The Nordic Farm spans 583 acres and is part of a large envelope of what Raap hopes will become 5,000 acres of conserved healthy working landscapes spanning from Philo Ridge Farm to Shelburne Farms. Green Mountain Power is providing expertise to help Nordic Farm demonstrate how working farms can be critical to the fight against climate change; by expanding renewable energy generation, utilizing on-site storage, capturing excess carbon and sequestering it, while generating much needed new revenue streams.
