Sustaining the vitality of local, sustainable, and compassionate producers is essential to creating stronger communities. Personalized relationships are the core of who we are.

As a producer and small business owner, sales, packaging and transport of the product to the consumer can be the most daunting part of the job. We exist to eliminate that, which means producers can do more of what they love to do: produce premium product for all to enjoy.
