Something feels right about buying food off of a sailboat rather than a diesel truck.
Products from the Vermont Sail Freight Project can be pre-ordered on Good Eggs, a site devoted to delivering food to NYC from the best local farmers & foodmakers.
In August, we spoke with Erik Andrus to learn about his mission as project director at the Vermont Sail Freight Project. First mate Jordan Finkelstein, a recent Binghamton grad, came on board earlier this year to help build Ceres, their handmade boat. We spoke with him to learn more about his interest and work with the Vermont Sail Freight Project.
At the end of September, Erik Andrus will take his handmade sailing barge on a 10-day journey down the Hudson River to deliver Vermont potatoes, apples, maple syrup and the like to hungry New Yorkers, an event that will be remarkable only because this is 2013.
