Homestead and Garden Exchange

Hi Folks,

So we are trying something a little different, we’ve setup a space in the Co-op to donate their no longer used Homestead and Garden supplies. We then set a reasonable price on the item and any proceeds generated from the sales goes into a fund for folks that want to be members but can’t quite afford the equity of joining. So if you have some unused good that you think would fit and want to go to a good home bring them on in!

New Item From Toddy Pond Farm!

Hey Folks,

We are pleased to announce that we have received our first delivery of some of the Toddy Pond cheeses to the Co-op! The flavors are Fromage Blanc w/ Fresh Herbs with olive oil and Fromage Blanc w/Lemon Rosemary and Olive Oil. And now that we carry the cheese you can now return your cheese bottles back to the Co-op for your deposit. So if you’ve got some free time you should take a trek out to their farm store, buy some cheese and check out their other available items  and you can now return your bottles to us!
