Hey India!


I will CC the rest of the New Farmer list on this…yes, I am happy to pass along anyone I come across, but I know that Beth Holtzman gets quite a few new farmer calls, as do others.


Let’s all share—thanks!

Subject: Looking for New Farmers in Rutland Area


Hi Jenn,

The Rutland Area Farm and Food Link is surveying farmers to gauge interest/need in a proposed food processing facility.  While we have good contacts in the established farmer community, we feel that the folks we really need to be talking with are new farmers who are still identifying their markets and assessing their options.  Could you share contact info with new farmers in your network that are based in the Rutland/Addison County area?
