The Grange Kitchen is operated within the existing Dartmouth Grange organizational structure. The facility, a 2,000 square foot addition to the Dartmouth Grange’s historic Patron’s Hall, provides food preparation, production, and storage space. The Grange Kitchen opened in January of 2007 and offers a modern, licensed, certified, clean, and sanitary workplace to meet the needs of light small-scale food production and various food service operations. Equipment in the kitchen includes most anything necessary for light small-scale food production, such as a steam kettle, braising pan, range, ovens, and filling machine.

Why the Dartmouth Grange built a shared-used kitchen:

To strengthen the community and support agriculture. Food entrepreneurs are important to economic development and sustainability of rural communities: jobs, taxes, and utilization of agricultural products = value added.
