2018 Local Food Guide

ACORN's 2018 Local Food & Farm Guide is hot off the press! Look for it in this Thursday's Addison Independent. Throughout the year, you can pick one up at zillions of outlets- from food stores to restaurants and at farm stands.

We are happy to announce this fundraising effort is once again a great success. A shout of appreciation to our team of Susan Smiley & Jonathan Corcoran for making another triumphant issue. Please support the businesses who advertise and are listed in the Guide; let them know you too support ACORN.

Tour de Farms featured in The Local Motive series on VT PBS

This new, six-part series explores six separate aspects of Vermont's local food system: production, processing, distribution, farm to institution, the consumer and waste.
