This week we are excited to announce that we are highlighting Pete’s Greens from Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.
Pete’s Greens is a Vermont institution. Located in the Craftsbury, they are one of the largest certified organic farms in the state. They also have one of the largest CSA memberships of any farm around. They are a diversified farm offering a variety of vegetables and meats. Recently they have purchased an adjacent farm and started raising all natural pork. After a devastating barn fire destroyed the original barn on their property the community joined to help Pete rebuild better than ever. Touched by such generosity Pete took some of the money raised for his farm and started The Vermont Farm Fund which farmers and food producers can use to get long term low interest loans when they are in times of need.
We are using pork bellies and root veggies from Pete’s Greens in this week’s farm share plate. Feel free to ask your Juniper server for more details or call us directly at 802.651.5027.
