We are owned and controlled by those who produce (farmers), distribute (workers), and consume (customers) fresh local food. We are the first cooperative in the Country where growers, farmers, and staff are all equal owners. Each membrship group elects 2 directors, and board decisions require at least one vote from each group. Legally we are a NC Cooperative Corporation.

  • Every member of the community has secure access to enough healthy food.

Consumers are healthier and engaged, using the food/health teaching resources available: recipes, cook school, nutrition assessment, preserving, growing, etc.
