Food hubs are dedicated to promoting local agriculture and to positively impacting regional economic development.

As the operator of the Brass City Regional Food Hub and in partnership with the City of Waterbury, Brass City Harvest facilitates a network of Connecticut’s finest family farms and orchards. We help connect these enterprises with consumers and wholesale entities to foster strong relationships between family farms and communities, as well as other retail and wholesale markets.

Brass City Harvest helps increase local food access, distribution and consumption. We also seek to find, retain, and nourish local food entrepreneurs in order to collectively build healthy, sustainable, and food-equitable communities. Brass City Regional Food Hub sells Connecticut Grown produce, dairy items, and artisan products, in order to:

  • Fuel economic development by supporting emerging entrepreneurs and promoting increased consumption of locally produced food.
  • Promote healthy eating by providing local residents fresh and healthy food where there could otherwise be food deserts.

All the farm-fresh products we feature are high-quality produce and farm products with full nutritional value. They are subjected to on-farm safety inspection and training, food tracking software, and food sanitation.

When buying from local farms and dairies, you support new and generational farmers. And in choosing Brass City Regional Food Hub, you purchase food from people who live, work, and breathe Connecticut’s agricultural economy. Supporting Connecticut farms helps ensure our state has a diverse and vibrant agricultural ecosystem, and we can help preserve farmland for generations to come.
