Headwater Food Hub does fresh produce in Wayne County

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get your fruits, vegetables, meats, and other groceries from a variety of local farms and have that food delivered directly to you?

That’s what a Wayne County company is doing — all while creating a sustainable food system in upstate New York.

That company is Headwater Food Hub

It’s a Tuesday morning and crews at Headwater Food Hub are busy packing up crates of local produce for delivery.

They’re headed to the hundreds of members who have signed on because they want locally sourced food.

Headwater president Chris Hartman showed News10NBC around the warehouse.

“This is just some of the stuff we have here. This is from Sweetland Farms in Trumansburg, one of our great root growers. These are the rainbow carrots that we’re well known for,” said Hartman.

Hartman founded Headwater Food Hub almost 10 years ago. The mission is pretty simple: to get local food to local people in the best way possible.

“It’s a way for families and local individuals to connect with a wonderful, fantastic food chain that is value-oriented and really thinking about sustainability,” he said.
