Ova Regionally Responsible


Vermont Hydroponic Produce, LLC is part of the UVP Group; a collection of fresh companies dedicated to bringing the NY/New England region the finest and freshest possible produce, meat, cheese and seafood every day.  As part of this effort we are working in the new program called “Regionally Responsible” or RR<250.

The USDA “local” rule states that if a product is grown or produced within the states borders or 400 miles that it is considered “local”. We are implementing a “Regionally Responsible” sourcing program that will be designated by our Gold Seal (above)

Our production facilities in both Quebec and Vermont fall within the dedicated 250 mile zone from Upper Valley Produce’s facility in White River Junction, Vermont.  We are taking steps to help the overall group develop the industry first branding program for all fresh products sourced from within these parameters.

You will know that this product is “Regionally Responsible” by the RR<250 distinction on the invoice and the gold seal on the box.

We are uniquely qualified to bring this industry first program to you:

  1. Vermont Hydroponic Produce is a regionally responsible company growing and sourcing tomatoes within our region.
  2. Upper Valley Produce is a regional supplier (we only serve our region, we are not from Houston, Texas or LaCrosse, Wisconsin)
  3. is our web-based local produce sourcing site designed to help retailers and institutional buyers access our network of GAP certified regional growers.
  4. Robie Farms is our exclusive Beef, Pork and Lamb supplier, located in Piermont, NH and only sourcing from our region.
  5. Taste of the North sources 95% of its products from within our RR<250region.
  6. Steve Connolly Seafood, our exclusive seafood partner has a full line of sustainably sourced seafood from within our 250 mile Regionally Responsible zone.

Regionally Responsible sourcing, creating a more food secure region right here in New England.
