Potomac Highlands Food Co-operative
Eastern recently received a three year USDA grant to form an independent local food cooperative to enable producers and farmers to sell collectively. Selling cooperatively means working together to identify new buyers, products needed, as well as identify and meet challenges. The co-op is in its formative stage at this time and is beginning the work of understanding the unique market opportunities available to farmers and producers of the Potomac Highlands counties. If you are interested in participating as a producer, buying local products, or just want to know more information, please contact Amanda West, co-op coordinator, at Amanda.West@easternwv.edu.
