Our History & Cooperative

Woodbelly was started in 2008 by two friends on a CSA farm in Morrisville, selling our pizza at the local market there. We also made the trip to Montpelier every Friday night to prepared our dough on a friend's porch for the morning Farmers Market.

Born out of the cooperative spirit and the gift of friendship, Woodbelly is now organized as a worker-owned cooperative. Worker-owners participate in management and share in the profit based on the number of hours they contribute, much like the way co-op food store members receive "patronage" based on dollars spent. 

We now mix our dough in a real kitchen and head to events the same day they are going to happen. We know that our food—from hand, from friends—tastes better and means more than any mass-produced "fast casual" can hope for. Join us in sharing the gift of nourishing food and conversation at our next event . . . or yours.

Laughter and full bellies will follow . . .
