Place Listings on DigInVT
How to list your business on DigInVT
DigInVT place listings are agricultural or culinary businesses that offer the public an authentic Vermont food experience.
We build our database from the membership of the DigInVT partner organizations, current DigInVT partners are listed on the DigInVT website. Vermont Fresh Network Partner Members automatically receive place listings if they are open to the public for at least part of the year. If you filled out your renewal / application and did not receive a listing, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
By using the up-to-date membership information from DigInVT partners, we check at least once a year that information like open hours, contact, and website are correct. If you need to update or expand your information during the year, please let us know what needs to be changed with this form.
Food and farm businesses that are not a current member of one of the DigInVT partner organizations can join the site independently if they meet comparable criteria and pay an annual listing fee. Please note that joining through a DigInVT partner results in greater DigInVT marketing opportunities. Listing fees are $50 for non-restaurants or $65 for restaurants / eateries that operate independently of a farm. The form for joining DigInVT is here.
To be included, places must meet the following criteria:
Comply with all applicable regulations - this includes regulations for commercial sale of products
Provide a safe and welcoming environment for visitors
Offer a product of which 75% originates in Vermont or 85% of its value is finalized in VT - additionally, wines must be made from at least 75% Vermont grown grapes / fruit
Be open and set up for visitors year round or seasonally with visiting times clearly communicated
Be an active member in good standing of at least 1 organization represented on the Council or meet the relevant criteria and pay an additional fee for application processing.
*Restaurant / Eatery & Specialty Food Makers:
We additionally verify that restaurants (and similar eateries) make regular local food purchases for their menu, supporting the local farm economy, and introducing diners to high quality Vermont products. All restaurants must:
1) Purchase from at least four local farmers
2) 15% of annual food purchases are Vermont grown or raised
3) Include on the menu, at all times of year, a range of local Vermont ingredients
Specialty food makers who make a product outside of the items covered by DigInVT partner organizations (ie not beer, cider, cheese, maple, orchards, or wine) and are not themselves a farm need to certify that their product features locally grown or raised ingredients. This can be done through through partnerships with farms, or sourcing the majority of ingredients (other than water) from farms in Vermont (majority is measured by weight, volume, or value).
