2014 Gold Barn Honors Announced!

September 3, 2014

All Vermont Fresh Network chefs have to know their farmers and serve products from Vermont, but there are some chefs whose commitment to Vermont grown products is exceptional. The Gold Barn Honor gives VFN a chance to acknowledge these chefs.

Each Gold Barn chef meets both of the following requirements:

  • Sourcing ingredients from 15 or more Vermont Fresh Network farmers.
  • 30% of their annual food expenditures are purchased from VT farmers and food producers, or they purchase over $175,000 of VT grown food products annually.

Gold Barn chefs are the top 20% of our membership in terms of the number of Vermont farmers they partner with, the diversity of Vermont ingredients that they use and the volume of Vermont products they purchase. It is an inspiring group, and we are pleased to finally give them the recognition they deserve.
