Baby Bundts of Vermont

MORRISTOWN, VT

Baby Bundts are a non-GMO product that values using the best ingredients. We strive to keep our cost low and our quality high by making our own flour blends. Each cake is a unique blend of flours. Some have nut flours and meals such as almond, hazelnut, and coconut. Others contain brown rice and sorghum ratios. All of the cakes have a secret ingredient—an ancient grain from Ethiopia called teff. Baking with teff has enhanced the flavor and texture of our cakes, loading them with iron and protein.

Butterworks Farm

Our cows are a herd of very friendly and sometimes precocious Jerseys. Each has her own name and stanchion in the barn during milking. We choose Jerseys for their ability to produce milk on a 100% grass-fed diet. High fiber and mineral rich grasses, legumes and forages are available to our cows always in the lush, rotationally grazed pastures of summer and the sweet hay in the winter solar barn. All our cows are born here on the farm. These hard-working girls are all business, producing milk of exceptional quality and creaminess and providing a perfect foundation for our superb line of dairy products. 

Hoof-N-Hay Ranch

JOHNSON, VT

Our Beef animals are 100% grass fed. We recently put up a covered barnyard where they are housed in the winter time on a bedded pack. There they are protected from the elements of the cold winter months. We keep our pigs inside our barn where their pens are cleaned twice a day and they are fed twice a day. We feed our pigs high protein Poulin grain. When available they are spoiled with cream cheese from a cheese factory and garden root vegetables along with second cut hay. They are well cared for. In the summer, we raise three sets of 100 roaster chickens. These birds are raised in a spacious setting outside where they can range as they please. They are fed high-protein grain and fresh water. We raised them 7 weeks before processing.

Lynn spends 6 months a year on his hook-and-line troller in the icy waters off of Southeast Alaska and 6 months with his wife here in Vermont.

This instills a deep connection to and confidence in the origin and quality of the fish and is a great way to have Certified Responsible Wild Alaska Salmon from the fisherman himself here in Vermont.

Fat Chance Farm LLC

HYDE PARK, VT
As more and more people become interested in "nose-to-tail" eating of locally raised, pastured animals, we need to remember that food isn't always the best use for every part of the animal. My soaps and salves are simple, gentle on the skin, and never contain artificial colors or fragrances. Everyone deserves to be comfortable in their own skin. Whether you battle oil or dryness, harsh chemicals at work, dirt, or overuse, I strive to make products for you that are affordable, effective and that use local ingredients. If I don't make something that you would like to see, start a conversation and see where it takes us!

The Vermont Switchel Co.

CABOT, VT

Our grandparents were dairy farmers in Glover, Vermont and they also had a hillside sugarbush where they made maple syrup.
