Project Description: A local producer group that works to build local identity, use collective buying power to reduce costs, increase access to affordable animal feed, facilitates institutional purchasing, addresses producer challenges, reduces barriers for new producers, and evaluates local market needs.

Our local producer group has grown to 19 members, and we have successfully placed 2 feed orders through Widdes Feed and Farm Supply. Widdes is a locally owned feed company out of Esko, Minnesota. They source locally grown non-GMO grains for their feed, and they offer delivery to our area. By joining our orders together, and also partnering with the Finland Cooperative we were able to significantly reduce costs for all who placed orders. Collective buying power works! If you are a local producer who would like to participate, please join the group here. Alternatively, you can send us an email here.

We have established a local producers group on Facebook and are currently looking into ways we can use our collective buying power to access more affordable animal feed. If you are a local producer who would like to join this conversation please join the group here. Alternatively, you can send us an email here.
