3 ½ pounds VT grown Tomatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces

¼ cup plus 2 Tbsp Butterworks Farm Sunflower Oil (or extra virgin olive oil) plus extra for drizzling

1 tsp finely chopped Thea Schwartz organic Garlic(about 2 cloves)

1 pound Penne

2 to 3 ounces Ricotta Salata or Parmesan Cheese, grated for serving


1. Combine tomatoes, ¼ cup oil, garlic, and 2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl, and then season with pepper. Let stand at room temperature until tomatoes exude juice, at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours.

Hello Farm-to-Table Participants!

There are plenty of markets available to purchase food from these days. But it’s hard to avoid thinking about who we are really supporting when we check out. What does Shaw’s stand for, Price Chopper, the Hunger Mountain Coop? Who and what is Black River Produce committed to?

Food Works is a grassroots organization committed to community-based solutions to the growing concerns of poor nutrition, diet, health, land use and declining food security. Farm-to-Table began in 2003 as a program called “Beyond Hunger” which received grant funds to pay farmers for food being provided to under-served senior citizens who could not afford fresh food. This food was paid for by grants and delivered by youth. In exchange for receiving free food, the elders agreed to teach the youth a thing or two about traditional food preparation.

As the years went on, the demand for fresh local food grew and thus Farm-to-Table was born. Initially Farm-to-Table only distributed food to congregate meals sites serving at-risk populations. Today, Farm-to-Table provides food to over 75 sites in Washington County, including food shelves, senior centers, day-care centers, schools, mental health care facilities, co-ops, restaurants, community buying clubs, hospitals, colleges and more!

We want you to know our mission because we are proud of it! We want you to eat the freshest, healthiest organic produce available to you and we want your neighbor to do the same, regardless of their paycheck. So go ahead, log in to the market to place an order for next Wednesday. The market is always open! We will be accepting orders for our next delivery, Wednesday, September 11th , until Sunday night at 11 pm.

With Love and Kindness and Food Justice for All,

Farm to Table Staff


A few important notes:

- Buying clubs are now being asked to meet a $50 minimum to have their orders shipped out on the truck. Don’t fear! If your buying club does not meet this minimum, you are encouraged to still order as an individual, but will need to make time to pick up your order yourself at 5 Home Farm Way in Montpelier. If you have any concerns about picking up on time please don’t hesitate to call 223.7700 or email Ariel at [email protected]. Thank you for your participation!
