Myers Produce

From Vermont to NYC & Boston

ABOUT

Myers Produce is a regional distributor with base locations in Northern Vermont, Western Massachusetts, and New York City. We have operated year-round since November 2013. We offer our regions’ growers & producers two primary services: distribution and freight.


DISTRIBUTION : the opportunity to sell us food that we then resell

We purchase vegetables, fruit, eggs, grains, meat, cheese, and added value products from growers and producers within our region. All of our sources are located in the Northeast, as a rule. The vast majority of our produce is grown on small, organic farms in Vermont and Western Massachusetts.

We sell to wholesale customers in New York City, the Hudson Valley, and throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Our customers are all types of businesses, including retail stores, coops, restaurants, online retailers, caterers, hotels, fast casual lunch chains, corporate offices, and institutions.


FREIGHT : refrigerated transportation to producers’ direct customers

We are hired by growers and producers to truck food from their places of production to destinations within our radius. In this scenario, we do not purchase the product, we are simply responsible for the product safely traveling at the correct temperature from Point A to Point B.

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 the Spring of 2017, having moved 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 - MA Operations Manager

Sarah joined us in the Fall of 2016, 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 was the first member of our team to help juggle our physical and administrative logistics, learning the ins and outs of our ordering and bookkeeping systems, while hopping in our trucks to pick up from farms or make deliveries, depending on where she is needed.

Sara joined the Myers team in November 2018. She had previously worked to run Square Roots, a vertical hydroponic farm in Brooklyn, growing microgreens for many of the same customers that Myers Produce serves as well. Sara had previous experience as the HR Operations Analys at Citi Bike. At Myers, Sara is involved in all parts of our NYC operations - organizing the lists and routes for each delivery , working as passenger on delivery, visiting current, new, and potential customers, and researching ways for our business to grow within the NYC Metro area.

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.

Danielle Molden - NYC Delivery Operator

Danielle joined the Myers team in September 2018. She moved to the city from Ohio with a Class B CDL and a background in driving school buses and tour buses for various organizations. She is a well-trained driver with a quick sense of humor and a refreshing curiosity about the work that we do. We’re excited for our delivery routes to be her way of getting to know many of the neighborhoods in NYC.

Todd Lindenstruth (& Tulip) - Vermont Operator

Todd joined the Myers team in June 2018.  We first met years ago before Myers was quite ready to hire a Vermont-based driver, and we're glad Todd stayed in touch!  Todd lives in a camper in Hardwick, and is always accompanied on his drives by his dog Tulip. He has lived in many places over the last several years.  He currently drives the Myers trucks within Northern Vermont and between VT and MA.

Rich Cruz - NYC Delivery Operator

Rich Cruz joined the Myers team in November 2018. Rich has experience driving trucks around the city, but he’s really working towards getting his food truck - Born and Raised NYC - back up and running. His business offers “Latin-American Comfort Food” and you might find him cooking at events and parties around the city. This driver knows his way around the city, and can also provide a running commentary about each of the food trucks we pass while on delivery!

Paul Spring - NYC Delivery Operator

Paul joined the Myers team in November 2018. Paul is a musician (he is a singer and finger-style guitarist), and he’s originally from Minnesota but is spending a few years in the city building his music career. You can check out his music at www.paulspringmusic.com and you might find him playing gigs around the city! You might also find Paul driving the Myers transit (or Tidbit, as we call it) on delivery on Mondays and Thursdays, making some of the stops that our hardest for our truck to reach!

Mike Romaniak - MA / Vermont Operator

Mike joined the Myers team in October 2018. He is semi-retired but has his Class B CDL and is eager to help us out on the road whenever he can. Mike worked previously for our friend Wally over at Plainville Farm, and he knows the valley well. Mike takes care of some of our longer drives, whether he’s driving from Hadley to New York or from Hadley to Craftsbury, picking up or delivering pallets of produce all along the way!

Photo coming soon! Willie joined the Myers team in October 2018. Willie is a new dad! In addition to his role at Myers, Willie works at The Winston Prouty Center for Child and Family Development as the Intake Coordinator. When he’s working at the Myers warehouse, Willie is helping to make sure our “organize” shifts are completed accurately, labeling boxes, building pallets, taking inventory, and keeping everything in order

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!


Barrington Berry - NYC Overnight Operator

Barrington works on the Myers team just one night per week, but he plays a critical role.  He works the graveyard shift on Friday nights, making a few critical large deliveries on Saturday morning.  There is nothing like having reliable, instinctive drivers on the clock while the rest of us are sleeping.  We are lucky to have Barrington working with us!
