About Us
Our mission is to produce high quality organic and natural artisan foods, and to support local and regional sustainable food systems in the process.
Rhapsody is committed to supporting a sustainable local economy by buying our ingredients from local farmers. We purchase our soybeans foru our tempeh from Canada, for our miso and organic natto from farmers in Quebec. Our small natto soybeans come from the Mid-west family farm and our non-GMO. We grew rice successfully on our homestead in Cabot for 7 years, proving that rice production in Vermont is possible and that someday we’ll be able to source the rice for our Koji (starter culture for our miso) locally as well. We are constantly in search of opportunities to collaborate with local farmers. Right now we are hoping to find someone who is excited to grow organic natto soybeans locally as those are only available from a very limited number of suppliers. Also, we’re working on getting our certified organic soybeans for tempeh split and dehulled from a more regional source.

We are committed to producing foods that uphold their traditional value in an effort to nourish our bodies and community. We are passionate about fermentation. Fermented foods contain beneficial probiotic bacteria, are full of digestive enzymes that aid in digestion, support immunity and help nutrients and minerals assimilate more easily. Eat something fermented at each meal! Many of our products are certified organic by Vermont Organic Farmers. Our goal is not to only meet the organic standards but to exceed them, as the national standards of organic become less representative of the intention on which it was based.

In the face of the health, the economic and environmental crisis that our community, both local and global, faces today we are committed to our actions contributing to positive change. Our work towards meeting this challenge is in part by sharing our passion for high quality fermented local food!
