Growing Practices

You can feel good knowing that you're eating food that's good for you, good for Vermont, and good for the Earth. All of our Vermont Vegetable Packages include 90% or more certified organic vegetables, berries, and herbs.

The remaining 10% is sourced from farmers and food makers who use sustainable and ethical practices that we stand behind. These foods include:

  • Mushrooms from AH Mushrooms, which are grown using organic methods, though not certified;

  • Champlain Orchards pears, apples, and plums that are Eco Apple Certified;

  • Vegetables grown using Vermont Ecologically Grown Practices from Lewis Creek Farm.

In the rare event that we are unable to find the vegetable we’re looking for at the last minute - for example, if a farm’s harvest is off schedule - we may source from Deep Root Organic Cooperative, an Vermont business that works with organic farms in Vermont and Quebec.

Learn More about our practices for Sourcing Local Food and Filling the Gaps on the blog.
