We thank our Affiliate Partners for their support of the Vermont Fresh Network throughout the year - they help make our work possible. Below is a little bit more about each of them:
Black River Produce - Vermont's connection to fresh food since 1978. Black River Produce takes food grown right here in Vermont, and from family-owned farms across the country, and distributes it throughout New England. As an experienced food distributor, their relationships with over 600 farms and purveyors allow them to supply over 3,000 wholesale customers with fresh produce, meat, seafood, cheese, dairy, and specialty items. They say: "We’ve grown considerably since our early days, but we’re still driven by the things that mattered to us then—our family of employees, the greater community, and environmental stewardship."
Farrell Distributing - Founded in 1933 they are a 3rd generation family business with a core focus on Quality, Service, and Community. Central to Farrell's philosophy is that they are here to serve the Vermont consumer, their retailers, and their supplier partners. They count on every member of their team to support this mission and to be the embodiment of our philosophy. Farrell Distributing leads by being entrepreneurial, independent, and innovative in all we do.
Foley Services - Foley Services is one of the oldest family-run linen operations in the nation, in business for more than 125 years. They provide a range of textile rentals, including linen and uniforms, offer a laundry service, and offer mat cleaning and dust control. They are longtime supporters of community projects in Rutland and throughout the state.
Hotel Vermont - Burlington's independent hotel offers a local experience in the heart of downtown. Hotel Vermont includes Juniper Bar & Restaurant, and is located next to Hen of the Wood and Bleu Seafood restaurants. The Hotel offers a mix of private rooms, public gathering spaces, and space appropriate for meetings. They regularly host special events highlighting local food and farms.
