Winter Sun Farms founder Jim Hyland launched Farm to Table Co-packers with business partner Luc Roels in June to “offer local farmers and food entrepreneurs easy access to state-of-the art processing equipment, add value to their produce and establish a model infrastructure to increase the viability of regional agriculture in the Hudson Valley” according to a feature article about the business in the Fall 2010 issue of Edible Hudson Valley. What a great service to consumers and a wonderful way to help farmers make a profit from excess supply. We need a similar business here in CT!
