Southshire Meats is the first of our fully regenerative food brands, beginning with chicken, lamb, and beef. These animals play a daily part in the regenerative cycle—improving soil and crops at our partner farms, helping us build a stronger regional food system.

But just raising the animals right does not get products to market, so we have opened the doors at Higley Hill, a USDA-certified meat and poultry processing plant—the first of our distributed abattoirs in Wilmington, VT, and the first new plant in Southern Vermont in many years.

To reduce waste in the Good Food System, we’re focusing on businesses that can turn what are traditionally thought of as food processing byproducts into value-added products—businesses like composting, bone broths, and naturally-tanned sheepskins. Vermont Natural Sheepskins is opening its doors to provide custom tanning services and premium quality skins on November 1, 2021.

RFN is a founding and active member of the Southern Vermont Regenerative Food System. We are working with other community members like Bennington College, the Town of Bennington, Vermont Land Trust, Southern Vermont Medical Center, and many more to address food access and climate initiatives across the region.
