Your Fresh Connection to Local Farms

What are the best things to eat? Fresh fruit and veggies. Ethically-raised meat. Sustainable seafood. Locally-raised eggs.

Black River Produce distributes and delivers high quality products and services to over 3,000 customers.

Black River supports local agriculture in many ways.  Perhaps the most important is that they pay a good price for quality.  They also understand that raising animals can be a challenge and that farmers often have to deal with unexpected issues. Black River has always been supportive and flexible.  I always feel that we are part of a team striving to bring the best possible product to the consumer.
Settlement Farm
The Farmhouse Group has a dedicated local first purchasing philosophy with a very diverse set of product needs. Black River Produce understands our business, speaks our language, and helps provide access to local farm products that we would not otherwise be able to get our hands on. They are very much a partner in our local food purchasing mission.
Owner, The Farmhouse Group
One of the greatest things about Black River Produce is their multi-faceted commitment to local businesses. BRP plays a role as a supplier, a purchaser, a distributor, and a shipper for our business. Without BRP,  Vermont Fresh would not be where it is today!
