About


Grean Acres HomesteadAs the proprietor of Green Acres Homestead,  LLC,  Mark Montalban has co-owned a small home on a 1/3 acre lot in the New North End of Burlington, Vermont since 2013 with the intent of redesigning the homestead into a place of sustainable living including growing a varieties of foods, especially lactose-fermented, recently adding hemp that is CO2 extracted and full spectrum that are in some of our oils, tinctures, and salves. Since then we have produced enough kombucha, kimchee, water kefir,  beet kvass, chaga tea, eggs, duck, chicken, & rabbit meat, hard cider, honey & mead, gluten free stout, fire cider, elderberry syrup, herbal salves, & infused oils/tinctures  with & without CBD, to avoid needing to purchase these items at the often high market price.  Through our introductory homesteading parties there has developed an interest to share what we have and continue to learn about developing a permaculture model for the urban home.  Besides being at farmers markets, we do pick-ups, Nov-March deliveries in Chittenden county, and on-line sales through this website.  We take cash, checks, credit cards, apple pay, paypal: montalban537, & venmo: greenacreshomestead45   Chittenden County: home deliveries 1st & 3rd Fridays, November-March ; look at our shopping cart but order by email by Thursday noon before delivery: 1. items & quantity 2.drop off address 3. pay through Venmo.
