The Bennington Farm to Plate Council, a partner of the Vermont Farm to Plate Network and the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund was formed to advance the objectives laid out by the Vermont Farm to Plate Strategic Plan in ways that are appropriate for our region.

Our Goal

Develop Bennington’s local and regional food systems so that abundant and affordable food from our area forms an important part of our community and economy.

What’s New

On Wednesday, January 28, 2015, we’re hosting the TriLocal Banquet Forum at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Bennington, from 5:30 – 8:00 PM, marking the 5th anniversary of Bf2p’s founding. The forum is free and open to the public, please RSVP by January 21 by contacting Liz Thompson at 802-442-0713 ext. 6, or by emailing

In February of 2014, we produced the BF2P Food System Action Plan. The plan will help the TriLocal Food System—the areas of Vermont, New York, and Massachusetts surrounding Bennington—become more self-reliant. To get involved with any of the projects listed in The Plan, or to learn more about our efforts, please contact us at
