State to help Pete's Greens rebuild

Craftsbury, Vermont - April 29, 2011

A Craftsbury produce company is getting help from the state to rebuild.

Fire destroyed the main barn at Pete's Greens in January. The company also lost all of its food inventory, processing equipment and farm machinery.

Pete's is a major supplier of organic greens and other produce for stores and restaurants and runs a year-round CSA.

The company was underinsured but has benefited from donations and fundraisers. And now the state is providing $300,000 in the form of a low-interest loan to help Pete's rebuild.
