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.

Apply for a gift card
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2023 season of our farm stand gift card program. Please email us if you'd like to be on the mailing list for 2024.
Use your Gift Card at your local farm stand
You’ll use the gift card at your community farm stand where you can shop for a variety of fresh and seasonal foods, including products like meat, bread, pizza, salsa, and canned items, in addition to the vegetables and fruit you’d expect. You can shop at a time that works for you and buy what you want and need.
Bring home the food to heat up, cook and enjoy
Shop weekly at the farm stand or stock up for longer. Consider the farm stand your new grocery store.

About Farm Stand Together
Farm Stand Together is a charitable nonprofit organization based in Vermont that provides mutual food aid to food insecure households throughout the state. The organization was created in 2022 as a pilot program by Justin Reidy and Meaghin Kennedy, who wanted to find a new way of addressing food insecurity. They realized that digital point of sale systems used by small farms throughout Vermont could make it possible to buy gift cards to give directly to people who needed help, without the limitations and paperwork of traditional food aid programs.
In its first year, Farm Stand Together invested about $10,000 to support families from 125 households across the state, with positive feedback from farmers and recipients. In 2023, Farm Stand Together has officially formed as a nonprofit corporation with 501c3 status, and plans to expand from 6 to 8 farms and provide up to five times as much funding to food insecure households.
Farm Stand Together is working to create a more equitable food system in Vermont by supporting local farms and families, helping to ensure food access for all through sustainable farming practices.
