Buy Local Market Tomorrow!!

Hi Everyone! 

            As I’m sure many of you know, tomorrow is the 2nd annual VT Buy Local Market at the State House lawn. We’re excited to be there to support other small businesses, and also to introduce more people to our products!

            The Buy Local Market takes place on the State House lawn, tomorrow, August 10th, from 10 in the morning until 2 o’clock in the afternoon. It’s free to attend, and there are going to be over 50 different vendors!

            We’ll be selling pretty much all of our sauces and spreads: Basil Pesto, Maple Chipotle BBQ sauce, Chermoulah, Chimichurri, and Lemon Pepper Hummus. We’ll also be serving fresh cups of one of our favorite summer soups: Cucumber Dill. If you’re in the area, and/or have the time, please stop by! We’d love to see you.

Article in the Burlington Free Press!

Check it out!

            In Joe Buley’s soup pot, the value is added

Last Wednesday (the 15th), we had the pleasure of showing Glenn Russell (photographer) and Sally Pollack (journalist) around the farm and the kitchen. There’s a wonderful article in the Burlington Free Press that came out this morning. One of our favorite parts: “I think that Joe is a riot,”  Hays said. “He’s so exuberant and passionate about what he does. He’s so amped about every part of it. It’s a really remarkable story.”

            Oh yeah!

            Keep an eye out for our newest soup: Minted Sugar Snap. It should be hitting the shelves at the Hunger Mountain Coop and Middlebury Natural Foods on Tuesday, next week!

            Happy Friday, everyone!

Matchmaker Event

Hi All! 

            If you’re going to be in the Burlington area this Friday, April 29th (tomorrow), stop by the Hilton and check out our table at the VT Fresh Network’s annual matchmaker event! We’ll be there from 1-5 in the afternoon, serving up samples of ALL of our products.

            We’ll have three different hot soups for everyone to taste: our Chicken Ginger, Split Pea & Ham, and Broccoli Cheddar. We’re also bringing all of our sauces! We’ll have our Maple Chipotle BBQ sauce, Chimichurri, Chermoulah (our newest product!), Hummus (made with organic chickpeas and olive oil—another new product!), and our classic Basil Pesto. We’ll also have retail/bulk packages of our products out, so you can see what our packaging looks like—beans, bone broths, soups, and sauces.

            We’re excited to be able to reach out to more people in the area, and share our products! It should be a fun event—we look forward to seeing you there! 

As always, stay in touch!!

Things to look out for in March!

Hi Everyone!

            We’re headed down to Boston today! It’s the annual Local Foods Tradeshow (hosted by the sustainable business network). We’ll be in the Curry building at North Eastern University from 8:30 to 2:00 in the afternoon. We’ll be meeting with potential customers, and get the chance to check out tons of other small businesses—and see what they’re up to.


Later on in the week—this Thursday, March 10—we are attending the first annual ACORN (Addison County Relocalization Network) meeting in Middlebury. The network is a  group of producers, consumers, and other members of the community that are trying to address the (growing) problems of climate change, and with that sustainability and responsibility for the community and the Earth. It’s a really great organization, and it will be really interesting to learn more about how we can get involved with them!

            We’re also very excited to announce a new partnership with Just Add Cooking—a company based in Boston that helps with meal preparation—it works sort of like a highly personalized CSA. Last Wednesday we sent out our first shipment of pinto beans down to them, and we look forward to expanding with them. It’s great to be able to get into the Boston market through yet another venue. 

            We’ll be in touch soon! And, as always, stay in touch with us!  

            Have a great week!

UVM Extension Annual Meeting

Wow, it’s been a busy year for us so far! We are off to yet another event today—this one is at the statehouse.

            As a member of the advisory board for the UVM Extension, the meeting today will be an overview of the work that UVM Extension provided for the small farmers/food producers in the state, as well as a discussion about the goals for the board in 2016.       

            A few of the topics discussed today will be: how climate change impacts VT forest, tools to help farmers to adapt to climate change, how to improve soil health and water quality through collaboration, and keeping VT produce safe from the farm to the table. Not only will it be an interesting meeting, but it’s extremely relevant to the business that we run (as well as the businesses we work with)!

            Perhaps we’ll see you there! Stay tuned for updates—big things are in the works!

Have a great day!
