Not only is this small Vermont Business a champion for change in the workplace, they have also been champions of organic production for well over a decade now. These folks first became certified organic before the National Organic Program Rule was enacted and have remained true to those practices through the years.

Red Hen’s dedication to supporting their local community, their employees, organic production, and creating an exceptional product is certainly something to be celebrated and recognized. Way to go friends!
