Winter Bounty

Vermont growers use innovative structures and methods to feed us during the coldest months.

Written by Brooke Werley | November 26, 2013


It is almost winter in Vermont. The familiar crunch accompanies the early riser’s first steps onto the frosted tips of grass.

What we do

A quarterly magazine devoted to covering local food, sustainable farming, and the many people building the Vermont food system.

Vermont's Local Banquet Magazine illuminates the connections between local food and Vermont communities. Our stories, interviews, and essays reveal how Vermont residents are building their local food systems, how farmers are faring in a time of great opportunity and challenge, and how Vermont’s agricultural landscape is changing as the localvore movement shapes what is grown and raised here.
