Connecting Farmers & Eaters

The path food travels — the food system — includes everything from growing and harvesting to processing, packaging, transporting, selling, eating, and disposing of food. Our mission is to grow that system to be sustainable and healthy for both the farmers and eaters in our region. We offer farmers markets and transparent enterprise systems that help farmers, fishers, and food businesses in the Northeast reach more customers. And we work with the community through outreach, incentives, and educational programs to increase the accessibility and affordability of fresh, local foods.
