New England Food Policy Report

The new report, New England Food Policy: Building a Sustainable Food System, is a call to action. It provides a critical policy focus to existing work across the region to build a food system in New England that is healthy, economically vibrant, just, environmentally sustainable, and resilient.

Download the report now at http://www.newenglandfoodpolicy.org.

Fortunately, according to the recent 2012 Census of Agriculture, in every New England state the number of farms and the amount of land in farming increased from 2007 to 2012. What’s more, in some of these states, the number of young farmers grew as well. Throughout New England, many new and veteran farmers alike are working to feed our region while responsibly stewarding our land. But they need sound policies that supports their efforts — policies that can allow New England to capitalize on the opportunity to build a sustainable food system.

New Englanders deserve healthy food that supports our communities and environment. You have the power to tell your policymakers what has to change to make that happen.Take the first step today by reading and sharing our new report.

Keepin' It Local Market is OPEN!

We are open!!!

We currently have our farm raised meats, raw honey, bee pollen, maple syrup and gluten free granola.

We are also scouting for more local products to sell in our store. If anyone knows a farmer or friend that makes or grows local products we'd love to meet and talk with you! We are hoping to stick with a healthier more organic base of products, but are considering conventional products as well. Please email, call or stop by!

Also we are curious which local foods and farms you already buy from to give us an idea of what products to carry. We'd love to make your commute shorter and help you still eat that great farm fresh food!

Hope to see you soon!
Cheers,
Jesika & Bobby
