Tom Bivins Leaves Crop Bistro 

Side Dishes

Published January 22, 2014 at 8:53 a.m.

The Vermont Cheese Council has hired its first-ever executive director — and it’s plucked him from the top of the Vermont food world.

Tom Bivins has left his job as executive chef and partner of Stowe’s Crop Bistro & Brewery to become executive director of VCC.

“I am very excited to be working with Vermont Cheese and cheese makers,” writes Bivins in an email. “I have long been a consumer [of cheese], both in a wholesale capacity and a retail capacity.”

Bivins graduated from the New England Culinary Institute in 1991 and worked in various high-profile Vermont kitchens, including the Inn at Shelburne Farms and the Pitcher Inn. Before he opened Crop, he spent eight years as NECI’s executive chef and served as the Vermont Fresh Network’s board chair.
