TODAY Our Community Corporation has been working since 2015 to increase access to fresh local food and connect small local farmers to customers in the Valley and beyond. We operate a CSA produce box delivery business, a wholesale food hub, a food truck commissary kitchen, and a 75-acre organic farm. TOMORROW Our growth will bring more fresh local food to residents, expand markets for small local farms and food producers, create 40+ new jobs, and generate $40+ million in economic benefits. Community members will share in the ownership, governance, and future profits of a vertically integrated business grounded in community values of health, fairness, transparency, environmental stewardship, and economic empowerment.

Our Direct Public Offering is an opportunity to join a movement that fosters sustainable agriculture, community ownership and economic development.
