Growing goods (and goodness)

Donna Williams of Field Goods in Modern FarmerWe want to give a happy shout out and hearty congratulations to our friend Donna Williams of Field Goods who is featured in a great article this week on the Modern Farmer website. Entitled “How Regional Food Hubs Shrink the Path from Farm to Fridge,” the piece does a nice job of describing the fertile landscape of “food hubs” in which she is working – closing the gap between small farmers and consumers up and down the Hudson Valley – and now into Connecticut!

Between the convenience and the value, says Williams— ‘sometimes when we price out our bags, it’s 30 percent less, relative to retail’—Field Goods has become ‘somewhat cultish.’ Today, she pays nine full-time and 22 part-time employees, and she recently renovated an 18,000-square-foot cold-storage facility to accommodate her expanding business.

Boyle Software is proud to be Field Goods’ technology partner, helping to grow their business in any way that we can.
