Solar Array for VFFC

Here is our Big Dream - Harness the Sun!  The city of Rutland wants to be the solar capital of the Vermont, and folks at the Vermont Farmers Food Center want to join that effort. Our next big step is to build a 13kw solar array on top of our rear building to reduce our electricity usage from the grid. We acknowledge climate change and want to do all we can to reduce our carbon footprint. Our very own solar plant will get us there.

THANK YOU to everyone who donated to our IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign for our solar array for VFFC!  You can still support VFFC in this effort by making a donation, earmarked for the "Solar Array".  For more info, please see our blog.

Peter Huntoon paintings of VFFC building are now on sale

The Vermont Farmers Food Center on West Street in Rutland is an amazing story of determination.  From the rubble a thriving community hub for fresh local food has blossomed.  This painting is dedicated to the hard work of those that helped make it happen.  A percentage of each print sale will benefit the Food Center.
