The Co-op is fortunate to have three local organic farmers on our board who help bring our attention to current food issues.

In our “Food For Thought” series we will continue to explore topics we think are important to you. If you have any thoughts or ideas on future topics please feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

"Amazing! Amazing customer service skills! Hard worker! So glad we have her!"
Co-op shirts are back with a new look! Printed on 100% organic cotton! They're soft and come in three colors (grey, black, blue) and come in many adult sizes.
