Farm Stand Together
Delicious Food, on your Terms, in your Community
Farm Stand Together helps connect food-insecure households with healthy, locally grown food. We work with small-scale, organic farms throughout Vermont to purchase gift cards that we distribute to eligible households. These gift cards can be used to purchase fresh produce, meat, and other farm products at the farm stands of our partner farms.
Buy what you want and need – there are no strings attached to your gift card. Shop at the location that's most accessible to you.
Use your Farm Stand Together gift card to reduce the cost of buying local food.
Buy food grown and produced thoughtfully to provide nutritious – and delicious – food.
Keep Vermont money in the Vermont community. Shop for your groceries from farmers and producers in your own area.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this program available to anyone?
Yes, this program is available to anyone. We recognize that people's food needs can change over time, and hope to provide food security to the broadest possible audience. While anyone can apply, we ask that you only apply for a gift card if you are experiencing food insecurity.
How will you be deciding who receives a card? Will everyone who applies get one?
How many people receive cards, and how much money is available on the cards, will be determined by the number of applicants and their individual needs. Applicants will be prioritized based on need, location, and farmstand capacity.
What happens after I apply? When will I receive my card?
In June, we will contact you to inform you whether you have been selected to receive a gift card, and provide details on how gift cards will be distributed. We expect to send gift cards by August 1st.
How much money will be on a card? How many cards will I receive?
Every household included in the program will receive a single card, with a minimum card value of $50.
Will you be physically mailing gift cards, or emailing them?
We will be providing physical cards to anyone receiving them.
