SUPPORTING OUR FARMERS

Small Farmers Distribution Network

 
 

The 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.

We connect local small farming cooperative with local schools, grocery stores, restaurants, breweries, and institutions in order to give farmers a viable markets for their products.

By focusing on local seasonal crops, we have built a reputation for quality and dependability. Our primary market is the growing number of schools, restaurants, institutions, and shoppers interested in local, fresh, healthy food.

3 WAYS TO HELP FARMERS:

  • 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.

  • Introduction of produce to new markets such as restaurants, breweries, and direct to consumers
