If you value a vital working landscape, thriving food system, and vibrant rural communities, please consider making a gift to CAE this year.                                                                        

Collaboration is at the heart of our work. CAE works with our partners to:

  • help farmers grow or diversify their business, including dairy 
  • provide critical infrastructure and services for new and growing food businesses
  • help producers get their products to market
  • bring more local food to institutional kitchens 
  • provide low-interest loans through the Vermont Farm Fund
  • … and support thousands of local residents through our community programs: connecting students to community resources, reducing food insecurity, and building community at Atkins Field

This November, volunteer bakers of all ages made 132 pies for our community, with ingredients donated by local businesses and space donated by Sterling College and the VT Food Venture Center. Events like Pies for People build connections across perceived differences through the simple act of sharing food. Read more here!
