In The Community

Our mission is to connect you with local farmers and producers in the most efficient and cost-effective way, so everyone has direct access to local, seasonal and healthy U.S. grown produce, and that every farmer gets a fair price for their product. Building on this principle, we partner with like-minded organizations, aligning with their charitable causes through the following focus areas:

  • Breaking down barriers and promoting inclusion
  • Inspiring future generations of leaders
  • Lifting up communities impacted by COVID-19
  • Delivering memorable experiences to affected communities
