The Farm Fund is a partnership between the co-op and Cheshire County Conservation District. The fund’s mission is to support local farmers to increase sustainable food production and wholesale sales that will contribute to a thriving local farm economy. The Farm Fund empowers local farmers to grow their businesses in ways that feel sustainable and right to them. It also helps the co-op broaden its offerings of locally grown, raised, and made foods — that means more local food for you, your family, and our community.
Co-op Member-Owners and our shoppers support the Farm Fund with generous Round It Up donations held several times throughout the year. In addition, Member-Owners cooperatively make an additional donation to the fund through our annual budgeting process.
