Grand Prize Winner Fat Toad Farm Has a Mightier Chance to Go Global

Thanks to the second-annual FedEx Small Business Grant Contest, Brookfield, Vermont-based and family-owned Fat Toad Farm, a small business specializing in hand-crafted goat's milk caramel sauces, has been named the grand prize winner!

Fat Toad Farm will receive a $25,000 grant to put toward its business and growth plan.  They plan to use the grant money to improve their caramel production facility, upgrade their IT platforms, streamline their order intake, fulfillment and shipping services and - hopefully, take their business global.
