About Us

Foxcroft Farm Harvest Program, Inc. was established in February 2000 to develop an affordable and effective alternative program for educationally disadvantaged and disengaged youth attending school in both Rutland and Addison County. For ten years the organization built a collaborative relationship with the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union to develop the Harvest Program to serve students in grades 7-12. In 2010, our program faced major cuts from RNESU and we have since worked to restructure to serve a greater number of students through several sessions in place of the original intensive services to a limited population. Foxcroft Farm Harvest Program continues to work hard to provide all students affordable access to the resources and support they need to become engaged in their education and grow to be independent, productive, responsible, caring and contributing members of their community.
