The Brix Local Food Community Hub Project

New ‘Brix Project’ highlights the importance of a local food ecosystem

Brix Cider’s three-year initiative will produce 12 original short films, as well as host screening events to showcase custom ciders, featured farmers and guest chefs.

Almost all of the food we eat — 80% of common grocery items, according to a recent report by The Guardian — is produced by a handful of conglomerates, and only 15 cents of every dollar we spend at the grocery store goes to the farmer. That’s not the case at Brix Cider in Mount Horeb, where owners Matt and Marie Raboin are working to disrupt the food ecosystem entirely.
