Baby Food: Local, organic jarred foods from Jeffersonville

Allyson Spanier planned on making baby food for both of her kids. But the Jeffersonville mom didn't always have time to make special blends in the kitchen, and store-bought organics were disappointing. "Everything was made by a large corporation, watered down and overpriced," she says. "In Vermont, we're such localvores, and I was surprised there was nothing of that quality." So last summer, Spanier launched Vermont Baby, a line of local and organic jarred foods. She manufactures fruit-and-vegetable blends such as Sweet Potato & Peaches at Hardwick's Vermont Food Venture Center. Her almost-3-year-old son still asks for the Beets & Blueberries.

Vermont Baby: Available at City Market, the Farm Store, Harvest Market, Healthy Living Market and Café, Natural Provisions and Vermont Maple Outlet. Visit vtbaby.com for more information.
