The Sustainable Farmer retail store is seeking shelf-stable products from local vegetable growers that could be sold in our retail store in Windsor, Vermont.
We do not sell fresh produce. Rather, we are interested in finding local, sustainable suppliers of canned beets, beans, pickles, carrots, etc. Farms need to demonstrate that they have food safety safeguards in place during processing and that they can be a reliable supplier over the summer/fall.
The Sustainable Farmer is located next to the Harpoon Brewery in the Artisans Park (www.artisanspark.net) and get over 100,000 visitors per year. Our store is a showcase for local farm products (cheese, honey, maple) with a special emphasis on farms employing sustainable production practices. Our goal is to grow the market for sustainably produced farm products and increase the consumers awareness about sustainable food production.
