My Love for My Co-Op
I joined our local co-op this past month and boy am I in love. Why didn’t I join sooner?! Except for the craziness of the pick-up while trying to keep track of my babies (but when is an outing not crazy with two kids under two?), the co-op is everything I’ve ever dreamed of.
Local farmers all in one place! I was in heaven. Seriously.
Local, organic, grassfed meats.
Fresh cheese made from raw milk.
Four dozen eggs!
I even bought non-toxic nail polish and remover from a local farmer who started this business this year.
And I felt like I barely scratched the surface of this shopping experience.
I should also mention that it was quite an enjoyable shopping experience, too – everyone was so happy (but that needs to be a whole different post).
I love supporting local farms, but I also love eating good food. There’s nothing better than local, organic, grassfed burgers with sharp cheddar made from raw milk on a day-of fresh bun with a side of sauteed butterball potatoes. Too bad I already ate that meal last night because as I write, my mouth is watering.
Food tastes better when it’s fresh, local, organic. It just does.
