FUNDRAISER UNDERWAY!

We are raising $5000 for new glass upright freezers in Sweet Beet Market to level up our offerings in the market and better serve our mission of local food and supportive community for all! Our donors make

UPDATE

  • 27 unique donors have contributed

  • $3,273 has been raised

  • 65% of the way there!

Word of mouth is the BEST way to succeed in this campaign.

If you believe in our mission, please share with your friends!

New freezers would mean:
• Easier access to healthy and responsibly produced frozen meats for our patrons. 
• Greater market share for the small scale meat producers who are doing things the right way (the opposite of factory farming).
• More room for storing and displaying lightly processed goods to help make eating fresh easier for folks (think chopped, skinned, seeded, and frozen fruits and veggies).
• More time for us to dedicate to the charitable aspects of our organization, like food pantry deliveries and farm-based education programs.

Our journey into retail distribution of local goods began in the summer of 2015 when we opened for business at Sweet Beet Farm Stand, a seasonal roadside stand and market outlet for Sweet Beet Farm and other local producers. After two years in the stand we had an opportunity to move shop to an old inn on the other side of town and become part of something bigger - the revival of a town icon and creation of a new community space. 

From farm stand to market, Sweet Beet's primary goals have been to create a new reliable market channel for local producers and to increase local food access for our community. Read more about it.

Imagine for a moment if we once again knew, strictly as a matter of course, these few unremarkable things: What it is we are eating. Where it came from. How it found its way to our table. And what, in a true account, it really costs. We could then talk about some other things at dinner. For we would no longer need any reminding that however we choose to feed ourselves, we eat by the grace of nature, not industry, and what we’re eating is never anything more or less than the body of the world.
