The Region that Food Saved

Hardwick, VT has a closely interlinked network of food producers, processors and retailers that form as close to a model sustainable local food system as it gets. Read Ben Hewitt’s profile of Hardwick, The Town That Food Saved, for details, or watch a nice profile by Dan Rather here.

The Center for an Agricultural Economy, the non-profit that helped coordinate the cluster of businesses that are at the heart of Hardwick’s emerging alternative food economy just released a comprhensive plan for the entire Northeast Kingdom.  Following a mapping of the region’s agrifood assets, the plan outlines steps to nurture the mix of farmers and related businesses that will help to grow the economy sustainably.
