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 within a 100-mile radius 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, Blue Sky Farms, James Family Citrus Farms, Riverview Apiaries, Lake Meadow Naturals, and Bramble Creek Farms. We have several local artisan food partners including: EssenceSea, Arto Moro Tempeh, Yaupon Brothers Tea, The Nutty Peanut, Farm Boy Kombucha, TLC Creations, and Joe’s Oat Patties.
New on the menu
Supplying restaurants and hotels in our community with The Villages Grown ingredients will give residents access to fresh, delicious, super healthy choices not just at home, but also when dining out. You’ll find The Villages Grown “V” symbol sprouting up on local area restaurant menus to indicate they’re serving up The Villages Grown produce.
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.
