Myers Produce

From Vermont to NYC & Boston

ABOUT

Myers Produce has been in operation since 2013.  As a regional distributor based in Northern Vermont, we buy fruit and vegetables from small, primarily organic farms in Vermont, Massachusetts, and Maine, and sell to wholesale customers in New York City and the Boston area.  Everything that we offer to our customers has been produced in the Northeast.

Annie Myers - Owner / Founder

Annie spent three years working at Pete's Greens, a four-season organic vegetable farm in Northern Vermont, before launching Myers Produce in 2013.  She had previously worked as the Forager at April Bloomfield's The Spotted Pig in New York.  Having watched small-scale farms flourish in her community in Vermont, Annie started Myers Produce to offer these same farmers an opportunity to scale up their operations while maintaining their ability to feed their local communities and to focus on clean, healthy farming.


Beck Ringle - Sales Manager

Beck joined us in 2017 from a previous sales position at Veritable Vegetable in San Francisco.  Beck's experience with this 40-year-old organic produce distributor on the West Coast brings enormous perspective to our still-much-younger operation, and we trust Beck to keep our customers as loyal and happy as their customers were at Veritable.  We are learning a lot from this member of our team!

Sarah Habeck - Operations Manager

Sarah came to us straight from managing the CSA at Enterprise Farm, a vegetable farm in South Deerfield, MA.  She has spent most of her adult life working on farms in the Northeast, and is particularly interested in raising animals and livestock care.  Sarah is the first member of our team to help juggle our physical and administrative logistics, learning the ins and outs of our ordering and bookeeping systems, while hopping in our trucks to pick up from farms or make deliveries, depending on where she is needed.

Zoe Allison - NYC Lead Operator

Zoe is a recent transplant to NYC from Connecticut.  She spent the last several years working on farms in Connecticut and Rhode Island, and pursuing her interest in interdisciplinary art exhibitions.  When she's not coolly running our delivery operation in NYC, she almost always seems to be in a gallery or museum, or assisting artists that she admires.

Manny Mejia - NYC Operator

Manny is a NYC native, born and raised in Harlem where he lives with his family.   He has worked with us since April 2017.  He does a lot of his work independently, and we are always surprised at the quiet, peaceful, accuracy of his work.  Whether delivering in NYC or making the long drive up to Hadley to our warehouse, he remains  calm, cool, and collected.  His earnest commitment to our team is a boon for all of us.

Freddie Ronda - Vermont/Boston Operator

Freddie joined our team in July 2017, and he was an incredible mid-season addition to our operation.  He came to us with several years' experience working with  Whole Foods in Eastern MA.  He lives in Springfield and completes our Vermont farm pick-up route twice a week, as well as a weekly NYC delivery and a weekly Boston delivery.  He is the only member of our crew that visits all the regions we serve in a single week!

Robin Mackenzie - Boston Operator

Robin joined our team in July 2017.  He lives in Hadley, MA, and is a man of many interests.  He has done screenprinting and now crafts hand-sewn bags under the brand name Folded Edges Wares.  He was (thankfully) ready to move on from the late-night hours of a Northampton bar to the early mornings of Myers Produce.  Robin currently completes two CSA share deliveries to Boston each week, and works in our warehouse once a week as well.

 


Paul Latino - NYC/Boston Operator

Paul joined our team in August 2017.  His excitement about our work is contagious.  His past includes work on the farms and food system of Hawaii, and he continues to develop tools for aiding farmers in that far-flung State.  Paul lives in Worcester, and currently completes a weekly delivery to NYC and two weekly deliveries to Boston.  We are grateful for his enthusiasm, which has breathed energy into our busy time of year!

 


Julie Robinson - Logistics Assistant

Julie joined the team in September 2017.   She comes from a diverse background in work within our food system, including experience in  farming, sales, education, marketing, bookkeeping, and management.   She has lived in Western Mass for many years, and has a wealth of knowledge about our local producers, as well as their local customers in the area.  It is good to have another person on the team who has learned from larger, more established produce operations before joining our forces!

Margie Serkin - Bookkeeper

Margie came on board in June 2017.  While she lives in Brattleboro, she has several clients in the Pioneer Valley, and we love that she bridges the two states, just like we do!  Margie always has an update regarding her two children, and knows how to manage the urgent needs of several businesses while also looking after her family.  Margie keeps our numbers organized and our books in order.  We are ever so grateful for her work!
