Meet Vermont Bean Crafters! Vermont Bean Crafters is a group of friends committed to bringing local and organic fare to their community. All of their products are at least 90% locally grown and organic by weight, and the only distantly-sourced ingredients they use are salt and spices. You can even see their Farm Sources page for a list of their ingredients and where they're grown. Vermont Bean Crafters’ burgers and other items are all Gluten-Free, Plant-based and Vegan, GMO-free, and made in the Mad River Food Hub's Nut-Free facility. They provide a seasonally-fluctuating menu of bean and vegetable burger varieties, as well as a myriad of week-to-week market-fresh concoctions available exclusively at farmer's markets, and special events. This week, they’ve also packed up some delicious white beans for our Omnivore and Localvore Packages as well.
