One Farm at a Time gives Co-op shoppers the opportunity to invest in the future of the farms that provide their food. The Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op with partners is working along with other co-ops, family farms and land trusts to raise funds and awareness needed to help ensure the sustainability of our local family farms for future generations.
The intention of One Farm at a Time is to raise funds to preserve each farm based on its unique set of circumstances and to encourage young farmers by making farming a viable option in California. Our first project is to purchase an easement to protect Good Humus Produce in Capay Valley. Jeff and Annie Main began this campaign with the support of the Massachusetts-based nonprofit Equity Trust. The One Farm at a Time collaboration continues that work to raise funds for this easement. With your help, we will preserve their farm for generations to come and then move on to the next farm that needs our help.

What we need from our community members is support for farm preservation every year. Then we are all doing our part to ensure fresh, local, organic food from farmers we know, forever.
