Farmers To You has created a partnership between Vermont area farmers and Boston area families who are committed to rebuilding a trustworthy and sustainable regional food system. Through weekly deliveries of fresh vegetables, fruit, dairy, meat, grains and more, Farmers To You offers a bridge between dedicated farmers and the needs of busy families. Safe, nutrient dense food is packed personally to order and conveniently delivered year round to community members at their homes, schools or workplaces. Farmers To You handles marketing, aggregation, and customer service so that farmers can focus on what they do best—growing quality food using sustainable, organic methods. Farmers To You arranges pick-up, delivery and payment so that families can focus on what they need most — time to share healthy, local, quality food with each other.
The Flex Fund’s investment was used to support expansion and relocation to a new, larger hub facility, purchase additional equipment, add key staff, and streamline the website and ordering system. Additionally, Farmers To You was able to leverage Flex Fund funding to secure additional royalty financing from key Boston-area investors who bring not only their financial support, but access to their networks and connections.
