This private group of individuals and families get fresh foods directly from small farmers within 100 miles of Chicago. You must become a member to participate. All animals are raised outdoors on pasture. Everything is raised organically or biodynamically. The source farms and artisan food makers have been providing food privately for more than 12 years. Careful attention sustains this cooperative. They look for people who want access to nutrient-dense specialty foods like fresh raw yogurt, kefir, butter, ice cream, traditional sourdough bread, fermented drinks and krauts, and hand-made bone broth. Fresh eggs, cow and goat milk, and some meats are often available.
