~Interested in forming an agricultural cooperative?~

Join the North Central Florida Farmers Cooperative!

FOG is working with the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group (SSAWG) and Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI) to help support the formation of Agricultural Cooperatives in the North Central Florida.

Agricultural cooperatives have a long and successful history and today there are more than 3,000 agriculture cooperatives in the U.S. with a total net income of nearly $1.2 billion dollars.

Agricultural cooperatives are farmer-owned and farmer-controlled organizations from which benefits are derived and distributed equitably on the basis of use. A farm cooperative would allow North Central Florida farms to aggregate purchasing, marketing and sales to reduce costs and reach a broader local marketplace. This project is for any type and size of farm. We are continuing with the planning phase and want your input!
