Queen City Acres



Our mission at Queen City Acres is to grow nutritious food through implementation of regenerative agricultural practices, and to revitalize underutilized urban landscapes.

In offering your support, we make a pledge to you that we provide produce of exceptional quality at a fair price for you and us. Furthermore, we guarantee that our growing practices are environmentally conscious and improve our soils, not degrade them.

Gardens in Small Spaces

Growing food in small spaces is our jam! We can help you install raised beds, trellises, compost bins, and other garden essentials. All made from Vermont harvested timber and treated with a beeswax wood preservative.


Garden Coaching & Maintenance

Build soil, dial in companion planting, set up irrigation, grow your own mushrooms, and take on other garden projects to grow more of your own food.

Do it yourself with a little coaching, or bring in a cultivation crew to do the weeding and grunt work that needs doing.

Going out of town? We gotcha covered with vacation maintenance to keep your plants watered and weeded, ensuring your garden is well tended when you get home.
