The Co-op has membership Opportunities for farmers, investors and community supporters. The farmer member application is available on this site. Call the co-op for additional membership forms.
Our products and services solve problems: we provide certified seeds, testing and lab services, organic farm training and white label product marketing and development. We are fully integrated to deliver.
With the tremendous impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our food supply, 40 Acre Co-op is adjusting our grow plans to accommodate the need to supply critical food resources to communities in need. We are launching a food security program to address the needs in the communities where our members farm. We are excited and a bit overwhelmed by the call to help farmers get back to growing for people, rather than corporations. This is an idea whose time has come.
We are securing contracts to participate in several food box programs around the country. We are looking for people who plant vegetable and fruit crops without chemicals and pesticides. Farmers will be paid a fair market price for their produce and will be required to grow to standards set by the USDA and 40 Acre Co-op. As an additional resource, the co-op will begin enrolling farmers in our Organic Farming Certification program taught by organic farming experts and in partnership with several universities. Inquire below or email email@example.com for more information.
ur mission here at 40 Acre Cooperative is to promote agricultural development, as well as economic equity for socially disadvantaged farmers. Because we know if all farmers had access to all the plentiful and rich agricultural resources available, we could solve many of today’s complex problems. All farmers gaining that access is what we’re here to do.
Disadvantaged black farmers have been the backbone of the agricultural industry for centuries. In fact, they made significant contributions to American agriculture throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Now, black farmers are socially disadvantaged, making up less numbers by population now than ever before in American history.
