Our family has a history steeped in entrepreneurial endeavors. Joe Famolare, the family patriarch, was a successful shoe designer and manufacturer from 1960 into the 2000’s. His iconic shoe designs coupled with his style and talent for marketing and advertising made Famolare Shoes one of the most successful shoe companies in the 1980’s. Joe believed creativity and integrity were the mainstays of a successful business and he continually encouraged business owners to try new ideas while making products of high quality through hard work and dedication. Bordertown Farm is rooted in this spirit. In the fall of 2017 we decided to begin farming hemp and established Bordertown Farm, LLC in Brattleboro, Vermont. You can find us on the Vermont Agricultural Business Education Center’s campus.
