Community Giving

We're committed to making a positive mark on our community. Along with helping everyone eat better tasting, more nutritious food, we actively contribute time, money, energy, and information to make the towns where we live, work, and play even better.


Round Up

Our round-up program is one way we support nonprofits that are making a difference in our state. When you round up your purchase to the nearest dollar amount, the additional cents are donated to a local nonprofit that serves Vermonters in need, from our youth to our neighbors facing food insecurity.

Our 2023 round-up partners included:

  • Woodstock Community Food Shelf
  • Reading/West Windsor Food Shelf
  • Waterbury Area Food Shelf
  • The Vermont Foodbank
  • Hunger Free Vermont
  • Vermont Farm Fund
  • Our local chapters of Meals on Wheels
  • Let’s Grow Kids
  • The Waterbury Ambulance Fund


We donate directly to local organizations that are working to make our towns better places to live, work, and play. We prioritize support for nonprofits (501 c 3) that operate within the same neighborhoods and communities as our stores.

To request a Farmers’ donation, please click on the link to the online Donation Request Form. If you don’t hear from us within 3-5 business days, please contact Patrick Crowl at All requests must be submitted no later than 2 weeks prior to the event. All donations are for pickup only.

Our staff is committed to serving in our community. We sit on nonprofit boards, coach team sports, and take part in community events. Our goal is to build worthwhile, long-lasting relationships within our community and beyond. We’re also involved in organizations, like the Good Foods Foundation and the Vermont Specialty Foods Association, that share our values of sourcing and selling good, ethically produced food while helping sustain our local food system.  These relationships are a huge part of who we are as a business and as a community leader.
