Farmer’s Co-op

I work with a cook named Tim who also grows some of our produce for us.  He was discussing with me how, because of the bad economy, many small farms in North Carolina were banning together to better sell their produce.  He was wanting to do something similar here in Southern Oregon.  He is expanding his operation for the next season and, wow…  What an idea this could be.  I’m not sure how to go about this, but what a great way to feature “local” while helping out the local economy.  The more I thought about it, the more I realized this HAS to happen.  It would be wonderful too to have some local dairy fresh milk to make our butter with.  More to come (hopefully…)  Anyone reading this that may have information on how to establish a local farmer’s Co-op, please let me know.
