PEACHAM CAFÉ ANNOUNCES ARIEL ZEVON AS OPERATOR Peacham, Vermont
- The Peacham Café project team is pleased to announce Ariel Zevon, area entrepreneur, food-service professional, master gardener, and Peacham resident, as the operator of the new community-supported enterprise. Zevon was the former founder and operator of LACE, the Local Agricultural Community Exchange located in Barre, VT. LACE was created to reconnect the community with area farmers and the farm-to-table movement. It worked collaboratively with the Farm Fresh Market & Café, which occupied the storefront of the LACE facility. The Market & Café provided a grocery outlet for mostly local foods and a café with a seasonal menu.
“In the six years of running LACE and the Farm Fresh Market & Café, I was afforded the
opportunity to get to know many Vermont farmers and local food producers. I also became well versed in all aspects of food processing and value-added food production through our community kitchen program. I also understand the significant importance of serving your community while keeping true to your mission and maintaining a sustainable business. It will be a great pleasure to
apply the knowledge I gained from that experience towards a new community oriented project,”
says Zevon. Her experience in the food service industry includes positions as a cook, barista, baker and kitchen consultant for Fresh Market Café and Espresso Bueno in Barre, VT, Goddard College, and several restaurants in California.
