Our Commitment to Sustainability


Vermont is a state with a stellar environmental record. From the nation’s first bottle-return laws and anti-billboard legislation, through landmark development tools that control sprawl and conserve farmland, we are pleased to live and work in a state that has made an enormous difference, and has served as a model for the region, nation and the world.

More than 25 local families prosper when you purchase from
