Ashland Food Co-op

Celebrate Organic Agriculture in Oregon

Oregon Governor Kate Brown has recognized our state’s thriving organic industry by proclaiming September 11-17 as Organically Grown in Oregon Week. This designation kicks off a statewide celebration that was started in 1988, well before there was a USDA Organic Standard. During this week, we’ll delight you with the best Certified Organic products from every department

Oregon has always been a leader in the organic movement, passing the country’s first organic standards legislation in 1973 and publishing the first organic certification standards in 1987. Back then Ashland Food Co-op was among the ranks of activists pushing for organic standards and remains a strong voice to promote organic agriculture through the Oregon Organic Coalition. Organic agriculture is a vital and expanding segment of our state economy, with 525 Certified Organic farms that generated over $237 million in farm-gate sales in 2015, with a projected growth of nearly 12%. Ashland Food Co-op remains the only Certified Organic Retailer in southern Oregon. We recently passed our 2016 inspection with flying colors. You can trust that your food co-op is a recognized leader in Oregon’s organic industry as well as in the national organic movement.

Ashland Food Coop

Ashland Food Co-op is a consumer cooperative that operates for the benefit of our owners. It’s simple to own your share of the Co-op. Just make a one-time, refundable equity investment of $100. You may pay in full or make an initial $10 payment! You'll be reminded at the register when another quarterly $10 payment is due until your $100 equity purchase is paid. In return, the Co-op pledges to operate for the long-term health of our community. Unlike most businesses that make decisions primarily to maximize profits, cooperatives make decisions to maximize service to their owners and the community. More on how to become an Owner
