Attention Farmers – Got Stuff? Want Stuff?The Vermont Business Materials Exchange www.vbmx.org is a free and easy-to-use website for Vermont businesses to list used or surplus items they want to sell or give away (yes freebies!). It is also an opportunity to list items you want or need for your operations. For the farming community, this could mean advertising the availability of finished compost, hay, straw, manure, used equipment, barn wood, etc. It can also mean publicizing you are seeking items such as food waste for compost, used egg cartons, bedding material, etc for your operations.
