Ballard Farm Stand Shares Bountiful Harvest
This year, Partners’ Pantry at Rock Point preserved and donated 463 pounds of fresh, local food to the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf. A significant portion of that blessing—roughly 200 pounds of it—was made possible by a generous donation from Ballard Farm Stand. In fact, Jim and Linda have made many gifts from their family farm, helping to express their local mission by feeding the community.
Ballard Farm Stand through Tuberville has donated a total of 5038 pounds of vegetables to the Burlington Emergency Food Shelf, St. Albans Food Shelf, and Colchester Food Shelves. Additionally, they’ve provided 420 pounds to the Milton Schools,150 pounds to Martha’s Kitchen in St. Albans, 210 pounds to the Milton Recreation department and another, as yet uncalculated amount to the Milton Community Center. But wait, there’s more…
They expect to give away another 600 pounds of squash in the weeks to come.
