There are a great group of farmers and chefs participating in the Rhode Island Renewing America’s Food Traditions (RAFT) Grow-out project, and we thought it would be helpful if you knew who they are so that you can keep an eye out for the RAFT vegetables later this summer, and chat them up about the project at your local farmers market!
The participating farms are:
Sweet Berry Farm, Middletown, RI
Heritage Farm, Portsmouth, RI
Zephyr Farm, Cranston, RI
Arcadian Farm, Hope Valley, RI
Red Planet Vegetables, Providence, RI
Scratch Farm, Cranston, RI
Bally Machree, Middletown, RI
Wishing Stone Farm, Little Compton, RI
Steve’s Farm, Bristol, RI
Poblano Farm, South Kingstown, RI
Greenview Farm, South Kingstown, RI
Ward’s Berry Farm, Sharon, MA
We’ll post a list of participating chefs in the near future, and in the meantime, please keep checking back for histories of the RAFT Grow-out vegetables.
