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.
