Grass Roots
Small farms, growing strong.
What are the
cooperative’s goals?
• To make sustainable
agriculture a viable way of
life for farmers on smallscale farms.
The Problem…
• To provide economically
disadvantaged minorities
the opportunity to earn a
living wage.
• To improve consumers’
access to healthy,
humanely raised foods.
The benefit of cooperating?
By sharing production, processing, aggregation, distribution, and
marketing resources, our farmers can focus on their farming and
raise animals using the most humane, responsible practices.
Our standards are developed and implemented
by our production staff.. They are reviewed
annually and may be revised to reflect
The production staff regularly visits each farm
to ensure that the standards are being met. Any
violation is reported to the board, who decides
what action is required.
