The mission of the Grange Co-packer Cooperative is to support a thriving small farm economy in the Adirondack/Champlain region. We pursue this mission by fostering a worker-owned cooperative to produce products that expand the marketplace for local goods in the region. These are ' value added' shelf-stable products such as hot sauce, pesto, frozen tomatoes, jams and the like allow farmers to sell products beyond peak harvest season, smoothing cashflow across the year. These products can also be sold outside the immediate neighborhood-- through our partnerships with NYC markets and the Vermont Sail Freight Project. We hope the outstanding quality of products created from scratch, only hours from harvest will entice more visitors, more farmers, and more businesses to our beautiful region.
