At Vermont Village, we live and work near the little town of South Barre, where we buy as much of our food as we can from local farmers. We prefer food that’s grown for taste, not for travel, from farmers who respect the land. So we buy apples from local farmers whenever possible and are proud to give them a fair price for their apples and help them continue to be a good steward of their orchards and the environment. Vermont Village is owned and operated by local people based right here in Vermont. There are no corporate pressures and no outside interests. We exist only to provide healthy, delicious food, to sustain the local growers and the land they grow their fruit on.
