What’s a matchmaker? An agriculture matchmaker is a gathering of farmers and area businesses / institutions that are interested in buying local food. Through short “speed dating” meetings, growers will pitch their products to buyers and think about ways to collaborate. The atmosphere is informal, and the goal on both sides is to make partnerships that are realistic and mutually-beneficial. Register today!

Aggregated CSA – RAFFL is currently transforming our Farm to Workplace program into an aggregated CSA for the broader Rutland community. We’ll be holding a short info session during the Matchmaker event to determine initial interest. This is an exciting chance for farms of all sizes to sell to a new market!

For more information about the matchmaker event, e-mail Jill at jill@rutlandfarmandfood.org.
