Local Producers

The Co-op attempts to identify sources for produce that are grown organically and locally and to pass on information regarding services and products that might be of interest to the membership.  The Co-op does not endorse any products or services and the Co-op relies on the representations of the suppliers/producers and does not check their credentials.  If you are a local producer and would like to be listed here, please contact us with your information.
