It takes a village to bring a hyper-local food system to fruition. Together, with surrounding farmers, artisans, chefs, educators and healthcare providers, The Villages Grown family will cultivate a shared vision to promote healthy eating and an engaged community.
A shared passion
We’re focused on building relationships with local farmers and artisans that share our passions and beliefs to sustainably grow and produce safe, great tasting foods. These partnerships allow us to offer a well-rounded supply of products to our residents, while supporting our friends and the local economy. Our current farm partners include: Long & Scott Farms, Barefoot Farmer, Kissimmee River Mushrooms, Riverview Apiaries, Lake Meadow Naturals, Mr. Mcgregor’s Greens, and Bramble Creek Farms. Our current artisan food partners include EssenceSea, Arto Moro Tempeh, Bold Bean Coffee, Aha Pure Foods, Yaupon Brothers Tea, The Nutty Peanut, and Joe’s Oat Patties.
New on the menu
Supplying restaurants and hotels in our community with TVG ingredients will give residents access to fresh, delicious, super healthy choices not just at home, but also when dining out.
To fuel healthy bodies and minds, healthcare providers in our community will have access to our nutrient-dense produce and we’ll be working together with these partners to promote the impact healthy eating can have on your well being.
In the future, we’ll not only be supplying local schools, universities and institutions with fresh, locally grown produce, but collaborating with them to inspire and educate our community about the benefits of eating local.
