We believe strongly in cooperative practices and the cooperative business model. “Farmers gets a penny, store gets a dollar” is the reason farms are hurting economically. We believe in cutting out middlemen to directly empower farmers through economic cooperation and vertical integration. Capturing all the value added of our products is the key to preserving farm land and farm businesses for multiple generations. We want to do this in order to save family farms, not get rich for its own sake. It is unjust for non-farmers to take 99% of the value created by the hard work of farmers..
FPS is making a special offer available (see below) but we are targeting ONLY small certified organic growers in Colorado using sustainable regenerative methods to receive this offer. That is because we are ethically driven to move forward in cooperation with those who share our values and support our mission.
