It's so important to have organizations that support farmers, especially organic farmers, as we need more of them! “Our goal for this grant program was to strengthen our support of the local farming industry. Supporting the local food system is an integral part of who we are as a natural foods co-op,” -Dale Woodbeck, General Manager.
We are excited and so grateful. It's an exciting year, or third and final transitional year leading to organic certification. It's a big investment for a small farmer, but not one we would ever question!
