Support Vermont Fresh Network

December 6, 2023

The food we eat shapes our health, our landscape, our environment, and the vitality of our rural communities. For 28 years, the Vermont Fresh Network has engaged farmers, chefs, food artisans and consumers in making the greatest positive impact we can with our food choices. Vermont is a model for what a community-focused, sustainable food system can look like – we hope you will support VFN’s efforts in this crucial work. 

Vermont Fresh Network members and supporters are all dedicated to a flourishing local food system for the benefit of our environment, our communities, our health, and the overall strength of the rural economy.  We believe that Vermont hospitality and food businesses that partner with Vermont farms are economic drivers and are vital to thriving communities. 

Supporting Members are critical to our ongoing success.  A contribution to Vermont Fresh Network is an investment in the people and businesses who grow, raise and prepare Vermont’s food and drink. 

This giving season, please consider making a contribution to the Vermont Fresh Network


We have more to do. VFN works to develop markets for Vermont farm products that do not yet have a strong foothold but have significant potential for the Vermont food economy. We look for new ways for food producers, artisans, and chefs to share their stories, build partnerships, and reach new markets. We also build tools for travelers to find authentic Vermont food and farm experiences, to bridge connections between farms and consumers.
