Greener Fields Together


Safe, sus­tain­able pro­duce. That’s what Greener Fields Together was cre­ated to deliver. Why? Because a seed-​to-​fork approach that edu­cates and engages part­ners at every link in the fresh pro­duce sup­ply chain is the right thing to do. Greener Fields Together quan­ti­fies sus­tain­abil­ity efforts with every part­ner, facil­i­tates con­tin­u­ous improve­ment at every link and, ulti­mately, cre­ates a future for con­scious pro­duc­tion and consumption.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing in Greener Fields Together allows Gen­eral Pro­duce to strengthen the food sup­ply chain by bring­ing fresh, nutri­tious, and safe food to our region. We dis­trib­ute local, regional, and national prod­ucts to sat­isfy the dis­cern­ing tastes of our cus­tomers. Our goal is to sup­port local agri­cul­ture and economies, while mak­ing every effort to limit our envi­ron­men­tal impact. We pro­mote the fair and equi­table treat­ment of our employ­ees and expect the same from the com­pa­nies with whom we do busi­ness.


Cul­ti­vat­ing Change

About The Pro­gram
We believe in local farm­ing and we believe that sup­port­ing grow­ers in our com­mu­ni­ties is the best way to ensure a future for food. Cul­ti­vat­ing Change, the Greener Fields Together local farm grant pro­gram, aims to fund projects or pur­suits that will help local farm­ers do what they’re best at: farm­ing.


Grants
Grant amounts range from $3,000-$10,000 and will be funded on an annual basis to qual­i­fy­ing grow­ers through an online vot­ing plat­form and peer review panel.
