We envision a New England abundant with diverse family farms and fertile soils, with locally and honestly produced foods and flavors at the heart of every table. Originally inspired over a decade ago by a Brown University student project, we were founded in 2004, incorporated in 2006, and received 501(c)3 nonprofit status in 2007. Today our mission is much as it was from the start — to grow a local food system that values the environment, health, and quality of life of the farmers and eaters in our region.

Recognizing that food and agriculture continue to be one of the few growth sectors in Rhode Island and that small businesses are the backbone of the Rhode Island economy, the Hub will create an environment that stimulates job creation and small business success. Together with a cluster of food and farm-related businesses, Farm Fresh Rhode Island will work to strengthen the local and regional food system.
