Power of We Intro
As a cooperative of organic family farmers on a mission, we’ve long known that none of us is as smart as all of us – or as strong as all of us. That’s why we join hands with so many of you across the U.S. who are working to support our local communities and create a better food system for all.
Beyond our mission to provide a sustainable living for family farmers, we give 5% of our profits to hundreds of grassroots organizations who are committed to bringing the good and helping it grow.
