September = #RootedinVermont Baked Goods
Rooted in Vermont, the Vermont Farm to Plate Network’s local food marketing campaign, is firing up radio commercials across the state that are all about Vermont’s wonderful baked goods! From chewy sourdough loafs to the rich buttery layers of a fresh croissant to crackers paired award winning Vermont cheese to the perfect cake or cookie treat to end your day - Vermont’s local bakeries are second to none and we’re rising up to celebrate.  The goal is to encourage consumers to seek out Vermont baked goods at their favorite stores and farm stands. 
The team at Rooted in Vermont is encouraging everyone to plug into the conversation on social media through the  #RootedinVermont hashtag on  Instagram and  Twitter or  @RootedinVermont on Facebook. We will be sharing photos, posts, and stories all month long about ‘Rooted in Vermont Baked Goods’ to drum up excitement!
If you have any questions or want to chat about how to get more involved (we have some sweet #RootedinVermont stickers to give away…), you can email the Rooted in Vermont project manager, Shane Rogers, and
