Producer of the Month: The Bread Shed PDF Print E-mail

Brittany Migneault was smitten early. She remembers trips with her family from Keene, NH, up to Northfield, VT, to her uncle’s Italian-inspired bread bakery. “We used to fight amongst our cousins over those delicious breads, and take them home to hoard in the freezer for later.” Once she had apprenticed up there, she realized just how much she loved it. “I love physical work, I enjoy working on perfecting the breads, and I really like the business side as well,” she explained. So you see, she fell in love with baking and bakeries, and never looked back. Four years ago, the Bread Shed in Keene, NH, was born.
There was no bakery like it in Keene, and she thought it was a niche that could be filled—artisan breads all made with basic ingredients. Brittany, her boyfriend Luke, and three staff members are the powerhouses behind this little bakery that has found its way onto many a dining table.

Building a Thriving Marketplace PDF Print E-mail

From the GM
Alex Gyori, General Manager
April 2015

I was impressed and very encouraged. On Saturday, April 7, 125 people involved in food co-ops from around the region gathered excitedly for a Cooperative Café, an interactive workshop organized by the Cooperative Development Services Consulting Co-op. The purpose of the event was to learn from each other what is happening in the food co-op world and to create next steps in the cooperative movement. Moving around randomly to join three other people, each group of board members, employees, and others imagined a future with thriving cooperatives in a competitive marketplace. Participants discussed what would be better to leave behind, then what to take along on the road ahead. Three ideas clearly stood out: a desire to leave behind inappropriate preconceived notions, a resolve to amplify innovative collaborations, and a resolute commitment to retain authenticity.

Community Conversation: Vermont in the 1970s
hosted by the Vermont Historical Society
April 22, 6–8 pm
St. Michael’s Episcopal Church Undercroft, Brattleboro, VT

Did you live in Vermont in the 1970s? Did you come to Vermont in the 1970s? Would you like to learn more about that important and influential decade, or do you have memories, stories, or information to share with Vermont Historical Society staff? Join us at this community forum. We'll be seeking input to help guide our research and collecting as we conduct a multi-year project to collect, document, and share the history of Vermont in the 1970s.
This community forum is part of the Vermont 70s Project. Learn more at www.vermonthistory.org/vt70s. Over the next two years, we will be collecting oral histories, objects, papers, and photographs; conducting background research; hosting community conversations and programs; opening a major exhibition at the Vermont History Center in Barre; and hosting a scholarly symposium.

The Vermont Historical Society engages both Vermonters and "Vermonters at heart" in the exploration of our state's rich heritage. Our purpose is to reach a broad audience through our outstanding collections, statewide outreach, and dynamic programming. We believe that an understanding of the past changes lives and builds better communities. Learn more about our work at www.vermonthistory.org.
This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

 
Current Status of Act 120: Vermont's Mandatory GMO Labeling Law PDF Print E-mail

Board of Directors report
by Vicky Senni
April 2015

Upon passing Act 120 in May 2014, the Grocery Manufacturers Association, Snack Food Association, International Dairy Foods Association, and National Association of Manufacturers filed suit against Vermont. The complaint filed by these industry groups alleged that VT's new law was in violation of the U.S. Constitution. The judge in this case has allowed the Vermont Public Interest Research Group (VPIRG) and the Center for Food Safety to participate in filing papers and legal arguments during the case. This is good news, given that VPIRG is one of the coalition partners who spearheaded this grassroots movement turned into law. The other collaborators include Rural Vermont, NOFA-VT, and Cedar Circle Farm, along with many associated partners and supporting businesses.
