1st Annual Farmer Meeting

Do you currently sell produce to the Chico Natural Foods Cooperative? 
Would you like to? 
Join us for our first annual Farmer Meeting on Feb 4th from 5:30-7pm at the 1078 Gallery located at 820 Broadway st. in Chico.

The Chico Natural Foods Cooperative Produce Department is hosting the inaugural Local Farmer Meeting. This meeting is for all current and potential farmers who supply the Co-op with seasonal, fresh, organic and sustainably grown produce. Our intention is to explain our operations, what we are looking for when purchasing local produce, what helps us sell more produce, and expand the availability of local produce in our store. Also we will be handing out by preseason-planning sheets that explains what and how much produce we want to see on our shelves for the 2015 growing season.

We will discuss:

Growing Standards
Buying guidelines
Delivery schedules
Grower’s agreements
2015 preseason planning

Drinks and snacks will be provided by the Co-op
