Farmers & Producers

Our partnering Farmers and Producers are some of the best in New England. Most are organically certified, and those who are not use sustainable practices. They are in this for the love of food, farming, and the art and craft of it all. Get them into a conversation about their crops or animals, their soil practices, or their land and be prepared for a lengthy and passionate discourse. They are masters of their craft and are all very excited about the nearly direct relationship they have with you. All of them feel it is essential that families know the people who produce their food. They are fully committed to the well being and health of your family.

The entire Farmers To You team is committed to long term partnerships between Farmers and Families where careful stewardship and sustainability produce great bounty, nutrition and superior taste.

Rise Up Bakery

Montpelier, VT
Farmer/Producer Website

Rise Up Bakery makes handcrafted sourdough breads using long cold fermentation and bakes them in a century old wood fired oven. They use a rye and wheat starter that originates from the Carpathian Mountains of Western Ukraine. This starter comes from high elevation and is a combination of cold spring water, flour and air filled with yeast from the local conifer trees which makes it unique. Creation of a loaf takes 48 hours from inception; flavor, digestibility and shelf life are refelected in the final product.

Owners Jim and Larissa Haas recently won a statewide award from the Vermont Historical Society for their work in bringing back to life the Union Cooperative Bakery, now their own Rise Up Bakery. This tiny old brick building was built in 1913, and was an important wood fired bakery for Barre, its labor movement, and local communities from 1913 to early 1940s.

The bakery was built by Italian immigrants who had come to work in the granite industry but missed their Italian bread. So in 1913 they built the bakery with a large wood fired oven that would once again provide them with good hard crusted Italian bread. Unfortunately, due to harsh economic times and a devastating flood, the building was mostly used for storage from the 1940s. The Barre Historical society saved it from demolition in 2004, and it was accepted to be on the National Register of Historical Places. In 2015 a successful Kickstarter fundraiser involved the community in the prospect of renovating the bakery building which has now been restored as a sturdy, vibrant bakery with Jim Haas and Larissa baking a variety of whole grain sourdough European style breads.

It is significant that Jim and Larissa are resettling in Barre from their home in the Ukraine. Jim grew up in Vermont but this is Larissa's first time living here. They continue the fine tradition of bringing another culture and bread to Barre, Vermont. The enthusiasm and dedication to the project is now rewarded by the delicious bread Jim bakes. He is not only a master baker but a great teacher, offering classes on bread making with each class focusing on a particular type of artisan bread.
