Who we are

We are a nonprofit organization seeking wellbeing and connection for all through community service. Our objectives include promoting community cohesion, increasing access to local food, and contributing to the economic and environmental viability of our area.

We are community supporters. We are farmer advocates. We are stewards of the land.


Our Branches

the {farm • Market • kitchen} connection

Our organization is actively exploring various aspects of the local food system through these three primary branches.

Sweet Beet farm

Learning as we Grow. We strive to grow flavorful and nutrient dense foods for market while exploring regenerative practices to nurture the land and pursuing farm based education initiatives to engage the community. Through operating our own farm, we gain insights into how best to aid and support other small farmers in our area. Through collaboration we have the potential to unify our selling power, access new markets, and promote greater viability for small-scale agriculture.

Imagine for a moment if we once again knew, strictly as a matter of course, these few unremarkable things: What it is we are eating. Where it came from. How it found its way to our table. And what, in a true account, it really costs. We could then talk about some other things at dinner. For we would no longer need any reminding that however we choose to feed ourselves, we eat by the grace of nature, not industry, and what we’re eating is never anything more or less than the body of the world.
