|About the Co-op|
The Floating Bridge Food and Farms Cooperative is made up of a group of farm, food and lodging businesses owned by families who are dedicated to locally grown food and sustainable agriculture. The co-op is working to build a strong community of like-minded businesses within the areas of Brookfield, Randolph Center and Northfield, Vermont.
The co-op's logo also bears the mark of community. A contribution by the artist, the logo was created by Ed Koren, a well-known cartoonist for The New Yorker magazine, who is a local firefighter and resident of Brookfield Village.
The Floating Bridge Food and Farms Cooperative’s mission is threefold, to:
Initial funding for the development of the Cooperative came from the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board’s Farm Viability Enhancement Program, as well as support from the Vermont Farm Women’s Fund through the University of Vermont Extension program.
Co-op members are pleased to provide their communities and area visitors with locally raised meats, vegetables and food products—available at their farms, restaurants and bed and breakfasts, as well as at local farmers markets and food coops.
