About Roots Farm:

We are a certified organic, diversified vegetable farm in Tiverton, RI.  We practice regenerative farming, and building healthy soil is our focus.  We grow year-round using no-till, intensive farming methods on our market garden scale farm (1.5 acres).

We use six unheated, moveable high tunnels for year-round growing, producing fresh veggies that are sold primarily through our summer and winter full-choice farmshare (CSA) programs and three farmers markets. We strive to produce the most nutrient dense crops for the health of the soil, vegetables, and customers.
