I've been working with the Iowa Valley Food Cooperative for months now and am very excited that our opening month is just around the corner, coming this August. Today I wanted to tell you about two exciting things related to the Cooperative.
As a producer member of the cooperative, I've been lucky enough to be featured on the Cooperative's blog here.
another producer profile, from the people at Pheasant Run Farms. There will be new producer profiles added periodically, so keep checking on the blog for more information.
Finally, tonight is a very exciting night for the Coop because we'll be having our Consumer Open House from 4-7 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Cedar Rapids. If you want to learn more about the coop, meet current members and volunteers, and most importantly, try some of the products we have to offer, please come and check us out! Here's an announcement that includes details and directions to the church. You can bet there will be some Rosie's Best granola to try, so come say hi! I won't be there, but my food will be, and so will a lot of other very knowledgeable and friendly people.
See you tomorrow for Simple Lives Thursday!
