SUPPORTING OUR FARMERS
Small Farmers Distribution Network
In collaboration with New North Florida Cooperative, Small Farmer’s Distribution Network is a producer-driven aggregator, marketer, processor, and distributor of a limited line of fresh, chopped vegetables from small-scale limited resource and historically disadvantaged farmers.
Our goal is to bring small farmers together with local schools in order to provide healthy meals for students, and to give farmers a viable market for their products.
By focusing on a few signature crops not handled by broad-line foodservice distributors, we have built a reputation for quality and dependability. Our primary market is the growing number of schools interested in local, fresh, healthy food for school lunches and other meals.
3 WAYS TO HELP FARMERS:
Trainings on how to successfully grow produce for schools
Processing vegetables from the farmers in our Marianna, FL facility where we cut, wash, and packaged them.
Distributing packaged goods to schools where they are easily prepared and served for students.
