1. Farmers Must sell products to at least one VFN member chef / restaurant and be located in Vermont or within 30 miles of Vermont.
2. Specialty Foods / Food Processor Must either purchase regularly from 4 VFN partner farmers or source primarily locally grown or raised ingredients.
"Primary Ingredient" means more than 50% (not counting water) by weight, volume, or value. If you have no single primary ingredient, more than 50% of ingredients (weight, volume, or value) must be from Vermont (+30 miles).
Answers to the following questions are for office use only and not published. If you don't currently meet Partner Member criteria, a Supporting Member option is also available - the cost will be discounted from dues if you join as a full Partner Member within the year.
