Ewetopia farm is a homestead farm in Richmond. We raise a small flock of sheep, bees, and a few laying hens, producing quality wool that is carded and spun at the Hampton Fiber Mill just down the road from us. Our farm has been a working farm for nearly its entire hundred-year history, and we are committed to keeping the land and our two historic barns (which form part of a complex of barns that included the West Monitor Barn) in agricultural use. Our farm is solar and muscle powered, and our animals are raised naturally on pasture, without the use of supplements or synthetic chemicals. We sell yarn and rovings, live animals, and we offer a limited amount of meat for sale in early winter. We also make homemade honey ice cream from our own honey and eggs, with seasonal local fruits and herbs, available at the Richmond Farmers Market only.

Jericho Ridge Alpacas is a family owned and operated alpaca farm established in June 2001 and located on Browns Trace Road in Jericho. We produce breeding stock, raw fiber, yarn (both natural and hand dyed), and handmade knit and felted goods.
Alpacas, along with their bigger cousin the llama, are camelids, which, as the name implies means they’re related to camels. They are naturally found in the Andes region of South America. There are two types of alpaca: the Huacaya (wah-ki-ya) which is a fluffy fleeced animal with a teddy bear like face and the Suri (surrey) which has long, silky fiber that looks almost dreadlocked. They’ve been raised domestically for their soft, fine fleeces for over 5,000 years.
They are shorn once a year. Each animal produces between 5 and 10 pounds of fiber annually. We sell some of our fiber raw to fiber artisans; some is spun into yarn to sell or is made into knit goods such as hats, scarves, mittens, and socks. New this year is our Yarn C.S.A. Check out the amazing styles and colors!
We welcome visitors by appointment and have several open-farm events each year. This is our third year coming to the Richmond Farmer’s Market full time and we look forward to seeing friends, new and old, at the market!

I was born and raised on a small farm in Danville, Vermont, where my family kept Jersey cows, a few hens, some pigs, and various other animals. Being the middle one of seven siblings I learned early the importance of doing my share of farm chores. Except for a three year term in the US Army, I have always been involved in some form of farm life.
Since my retirement from the US Postal Service, I have spent most of my time raising a huge garden and tilling many gardens every year. I also collect and restore vintage garden tractors, and design and build my own line of lawn chairs.
I am one of the original vendors at the Richmond farmers Market, when it was first organized at the Andrews Farm just east of Richmond on US Route 2. I have enjoyed my years as a vendor at the Market and the interaction with the other vendors and the many fine people who come as customers every week on Friday afternoon. It is a fine location and has a very congenial atmosphere.

Our market garden features a diverse variety of fruits and vegetables, specializing in salad and braising greens, herbs and melons. We strive to grow our produce to the highest quality and harvest only at their peak. Having limited space, we grow our produce in beds and do the majority of the work with our hands.
While we are not certified organic, our values and micro scale enable us to employ beyond organic agricultural practices on our farm.
