Vermont rice farmer Erik Andrus has created the Vermont Sail Freight Project, an initiative to deliver local goods down the Hudson river via sailboat. His objective is to use this project as a symbol for buying local and minimizing the impact on the environment, while still being able to transport and sell goods. On their first journey, Andrus and his crew were able to sell $60,000 worth of food. If you were curious, the man built his ship from scratch too.
