04 Jul New South Produce Cooperative
You may have noticed things look a bit different. That’s because Foodshed Farms is now New South Produce Cooperative. Our products and farmers haven’t changed – all of our products are still Certified Organic or Certified Naturally Grown, and harvested right here in Arkansas.
So why the change? Our business has grown! We began in 2014 with a handful of farms and a small CSA. But now in 2016 we’ve grown to nearly two dozen Arkansas farms, with over 450 CSA members across the state and dozens of restaurants, grocers, and community organizations carrying our products every week. Our new brand reflects this growth, and coincides with our official transition to a farmer-owned cooperative earlier this year.
New South Cooperative represents our dedication to environmental stewardship through organic agriculture and our commitment to the growth of small family farms. We’re working towards a new type of agriculture that promotes rural livelihoods and protects the health of our land and communities. We hope you’ll join us as we grow and continue to deliver great local food to families across the state.
