Gift Card Update

| Uncategorized

As you know, we have successfully updated our card processing to chip readers at every register. This upgrade allows for more security when making your purchases and allows us to process WIC payments at every register. We now have our own BFC gift card. Please know that because of this processing upgrade our gift cards are no longer accepted at other food co-ops, nor can we accept gift cards purchased at other co-ops. 

Overflow Shelter Meals

| Uncategorized

During January, February, and March, we will be preparing one meal per month as a Co-op to feed those friends and neighbors who stay at the Groundworks Collaborative Overflow Shelter during the winter months. Many of you received Shareholder hours last winter for helping to cook, deliver and serve meals.

Old Friends Farm

In Amherst, Massachusetts, 34 miles as the crow flies from the Brattleboro Food Co-op, seated in and amongst a picturesque rail trail, a golf course, suburban homes, and a strip-mall development, is a hidden gem of sorts—a farm which holds the local food movement to a lofty standard. Despite its high standards, Old Friends Farm is not pretentious. It’s simply the expression of the founders who care deeply about the land and the workers who derive a living from that land. Their salad greens, fruits and vegetables, cut flowers, ginger and turmeric, and specialty products shine bright with the care and love that is poured into the work and the land every day.
