Common questions and answers

What’s a cooperative or “co-op”?
A cooperative is a way of working together where everyone shares in the workload and the benefits. We believe that in order to succeed, all cooperatives must work together to grow the demand for local and sustainable food that directly supports our families and communities. That’s why we’re proud partners of Golden’s Organic Farming Cooperative GoFarm, Arkansas Valley Organic Growers Association, the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, The GrowHaus and more. Through our farmers and partners, we can provide healthy, local and affordable food all year-round. Read more about our cooperative values.

When do you deliver?
For individual retail customers, we deliver the third Thursday of every month to our network of drop-off sites thanks to a large group of buying members and volunteers. You can download the full 2019 retail ordering calendar here.

What do you have in stock now and in the middle of winter?
Guests are welcome to browse our online market to see what’s for sale. All of our products come directly from our farmer and producer members.
