The Clemmons Family Farm

 

About the Clemmons Family Farm

 

Located in Charlotte near beautiful Lake Champlain, the Clemmons Family Farm is ​one of the largest African-American-owned historic farms in Vermont today. The farm includes 6 historic buildings (circa late 1700s-1800s), a spacious 1990’s residence, and 148 acres of prime farmland and forests, ponds and streams abundant with wildlife. Your donations and other support for our programs helps us to keep this Farm available for African-American and African diaspora history, arts and culture programs for the community.

The Clemmons Family Farm's arts and culture events mobilize the power of the people, arts and cultures of African descent to help build a loving community in Vermont. Our programs are made possible with major support from ArtPlace America. Of nearly 1000 applicants nationwide, our "A Sense of Place" project is one of just 23 recipients of ArtPlace America's 2017 National Creative Placemaking Fund grants. We work in partnership with Champlain College, our fiscal agents Burlington City Arts and the Peace and Justice Center, and a growing number of other Vermont-based organizations.
