Founded in 1996
Red Tomato works relentlessly to bring fresh, local, sustainable food to market. Since our founding our team has mentored countless individuals and organizations.
We continue to put farmers first, ensuring that mid-sized farmers in the Northeast remain a vital part of our communities – both urban and rural.
In 2018: 30 presentations/panels, 8 mentorship and speaking events, and service on 19 board and advisory committees.

"Red Tomato is an effective bridge between the farmer and consumer. Their vision is to connect consumers and farmers beyond just buying a nameless, faceless tomato. I share that value."
— Donny Dzen, Dzen Brothers
“Red Tomato really helps us be better growers. We have a great, quality-oriented relationship. When I talk to them, I know that it’s not just some guy calling to give me a hard time - they’re looking for the same thing as me: quality.”
— Zeke Goodband, Scott Farm
When we were first talking about my sending some apples down to Boston, Michael asked me “How do they taste?” I’ve been doing this a long time, and that was the first time a broker ever asked me how the apples taste.
