Producer of the Month: Livewater Dairy PDF Print E-mail

By Jon Megas-Russell
July, 2016

The beauty of southern Vermont in the spring is something to marvel at.  What with the emergence of the lush green pastures, the return of local farm food, and the crisp clean air, we are quite lucky. It gets even sweeter when you catch a glimpse into the world of some of our most treasured assets, our farmers. This month I was lucky enough to spend a morning with Taylor Acquaviva from Livewater Farm & Dairy. Acquaviva actually means “live water” in Italian and thus is how the farm got its name. It all began about 30 or 35 years ago when Taylor’s father started Livewater Farm.

If you’re a typical Co-op shopper, you’re probably pretty focused on your list and greeting friends when you come to the store, so you may not always notice small changes and improvements being made.

Our managers just completed extensive work on the annual business plan, and we are now embarking on a new budget year. Obviously planning is largely about assessing and looking forward, and yet, we are ever so impacted by the path that has brought us here. We have learned a lot about our store and where it fits in our community over the last few years. We’ve been working very hard recently to improve our store, short of capital-intense solutions that we know will significantly improve our shopping experience. We just had an occasion to show it off to many cooperators from around the country who were in Western Massachusetts for a conference, and a week later I hosted several of my peers from the region for a daylong meeting. These opportunities enable us to see ourselves through others’ eyes. Inevitably, we get positive feedback that we cannot usually identify on our own.

Reflections on the Annual Meeting from the Board PDF Print E-mail

July 2016

It's been six months since our annual meeting and as we begin planning for the next big event, I want to take a few minutes of your time to share how the reflections from last year have informed the board’s work. Soon after the 2015 Annual Meeting, the board held their 2016 retreat:  we developed new committees and goals for the year, keeping in mind yours as well—we've formed a "story" committee to focus on the diversity of our shoppers.
