My name is Marcie. I started this co-op in 2004.
Before, we had to run to this place and that on specific days to get our meat and dairy items. There was no refrigeration and I had to pick up the moment I received the phone call. Once a month we were able to get dry good items from Ozark co-op located in Arkansas and half the time many items were missing.
Now, I have a commercial building with plenty of space and parking. Several of us pooled our knowledge and resources to start buying produce and meat products in bulk. I started with 7 families and now have 350 families that participate. It has been a huge job so that is why families must cooperate!! The rules must be adhered to in order to get the best prices and quality.
I now deal with 2 dairy farms for milk, cream and butter. I deal with 3 cheese farms and 122 other vendors to get the best deals.
I took this job on to provide for my extended families.
Many blessings have come from providing clean nutritious foods.
I am grateful that you are a part of it.
