Regional producers ready to serve hospitals
This quarter, we’re featuring four producers who are part of our Faces of New England cohort. From organic mushrooms to minimally processed produce, see below for new ways to purchase New England-grown products:
Red Fire Farm offers a wide variety of flavorful, certified organic fresh produce such as lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, and winter squash available for purchase and as a part of their community supported agriculture program. They extend the season with geothermal storage chambers that preserve the fall harvest and provide produce year-round.
The Just Cut product line offers minimally processed produce sourced from local farmers. By offering ready-to-use, locally sourced product in wholesale quantities they are able to help food service operations more easily meet their local sourcing goals.
Mousam Valley Mushrooms cultivates organic mushrooms on Maine hardwood and straw, sourced sustainably from the woods and fields in which they forage. The kitchen grade varieties are perfect for institutions, providing larger quantities of gourmet mushrooms at a fraction of the cost.
Deep Root is a collective of 26 farms in Vermont and southern Quebec that have been supplying customers in New England with organic produce since 1985. The farmers of the cooperative approach their work with a focus on quality, consistency, and a love for healthy food.
