2. Specialty Foods / Food Processor: Must either purchase regularly from 4 VFN partner farmers or source primarily locally grown or raised ingredients.

Optional Marketing Survey

The number one request we hear from VFN Partner Members is that they want more marketing assistance. We're happy to oblige, but "marketing assistance" covers a lot of topics and a lot of types of assistance. To help us better understand our members' interests in this area, we've designed a short, 5 minute survey. It's optional but this is shaping your member benefits so we hope you'll take a few minutes to answer! (Survey will open in a new window, link also available on the Member Resources page at VermontFresh.net)

Membership Dues
Please see the membership levels below. If you joined as a Supporting Member in this year, you are eligible to discount $50 from your fees - for example, new businesses that joined as supporters before they opened. Please use the custom amount field to enter the correct discounted fee. Membership dues cover one year from the month when Partner Membership begins, please note that they are not refundable.
