Fundraiser:

Help Us Take Care of Our Environment!

Isham Family Farm created the nonprofit First:Earth to support our natural environment. The farm is excited to host performances: Upcoming shows, dates, times, and ticket links are available at First:Earth Summer Series. As our stewardship values state, revenue from our summer series will be donated to a Vermont environmental organization. The 2022 recipient is Vermont Center for Ecostudies, advancing the conservation of wildlife across the Americas through research, monitoring, and community engagement.

Just Food Hub

We are raising awareness in our local communities about real organic and fair-traded food, worker coops, and corporate consolidation in the food system. Our products include high-quality and affordable artisan food like coffee, chocolate, tea, cheese, and hot sauce from cooperative farms in the global south and small US organic farms.

Just Food Hub’s mission is to offer community groups, like First:Earth, a regular fundraiser for their valuable work in our communities. We do this by selling these wonderful foods online and giving the profits to the community group. First:Earth receives 30% of all purchases when you click First:Earth at checkout. We offer free delivery of your purchases in Barre, East Montpelier, Marshfield, Montpelier, and Plainfield and can ship them elsewhere for an additional charge.

Just Food Hub collaborates with Equal Exchange, a worker coop that develops a noncapitalist people-centered food system that brings food justice and integrity to the US family table. Equal Exchange endorses organic and sustainable farming practices and democratic and worker-owned farming cooperatives throughout the Global South, Palestine, and the United States.

In addition to helping you eat well and building strong local economies and community groups, we are working to address the climate crisis and food insecurity. Join us and be the change you want to see in the world.

Orders of $75 or more will come with a free natural cotton shopping bag.
