About Us

Just a bit of our history here in Bradford Vermont!!

Farm-Way stands as a multi-generational, family-owned enterprise, nurtured by three successive generations and a team of exceptional employees who are, in many ways, an extension of the family. Established in 1983 in Bradford, Vermont, our sprawling 18-acre property originated not in a mall but within the walls of a former feed mill on Waits River Road.

At Farm-Way, we boast an extensive inventory that caters to diverse needs, ranging from highly functional clothing and footwear to hunting and camping gear. Our comprehensive selection includes firearms, tents, backpacks, saddlery, furniture, gifts, cookware, jewelry, fencing, and more, positioning us as a comprehensive destination for all your shopping needs. Complete Outfitters for Man and Beast.™

Since our inception, we have maintained an unwavering focus on quality and exemplary customer service. We proudly carry renowned brands such as Carhartt, The North Face, Patagonia, Darn Tough, Smart Wool, Filson, Merrell, Keen, Chippewa, Red Wing, Dansko, Canada Goose, CRP & Polywood furniture, Le Creuset cookware, and many others.

Whether you're in search of snowshoes, kayaks, power recliners, stock pots, dog beds, or warm winter coats, Farm-Way has it all and more. We gladly accommodate special orders, ensuring that you find precisely what you're looking for.

Our dedicated team comprises thirty-six full-time and five part-time employees, with some joining the Farm-Way family recently and others having been a part of our journey for years. We take pride in personally using and enjoying the products we offer, engaging in activities like hiking, camping, cooking, gardening, horseback riding, hunting, or simply relaxing.

Farm-Way's inception in May 1983 marked the beginning of a three-generation endeavor. In 1987, Paul and Bobbie Gallerani's $20,000 investment, along with a matching amount for their daughter and son-in-law Skip and Carol Metayer, facilitated the purchase of the business for $25,000 plus $100,000 for inventory from the Oakes brothers. This transaction, however, involved complexities related to land ownership and building rights.

Over the years, Farm-Way undertook a 30-year-long process of environmental cleanup and monitoring, addressing issues such as petroleum and gas contamination on the initial acre of land and acquiring and cleaning up six adjoining properties. Despite challenges, this labor of love for the town, environment, and the people involved became a cornerstone of Farm-Way's identity.

In 2009, Farm-Way took a significant step towards sustainability by installing a 58 KW Solar system, meeting 43% of its electrical needs. In 2015, a 73.44 KW array was added to achieve 100% electricity production for the existing facility, coinciding with the completion of a 19,000 sq. foot addition.

Farm-Way aspires to be the go-to destination for individuals seeking a diverse range of products promptly. Beyond commerce, we actively contribute to the community, leveraging our resources to enhance Vermont. With the support of customers, friends, and vendors, we've discovered that even in a state of fewer than one million people and a town of 2,500, Farm-Way can make a meaningful difference.

Highlights of the past decade include the installation of a 58 KW Solar system in 2009, being honored as the Vermont Retail Association Retailer of the Year in 2013, the removal of an unsightly building in 2014, and achieving 100% solar energy utilization in 2015, coinciding with the completion of a significant cleanup project.
