Farm-to-Table Co-op

Getting local food to local markets in Eastern Montana and Western North Dakota

The purpose of the co-op will be to market products on behalf of member growers and producers. The co-op will act as a broker for producers, charging a 25% brokerage fee to members and a 35% fee to nonmembers. The extra 10% charged to nonmembers will accrue into a membership. Membership is $500.

All agricultural producers in the designated area are welcome to join the co-op. The co-op will be able to offer the greatest benefits to those focusing on niche markets and diversification from commodity crops. Types of products marketed through the co-op will likely include, but are by no means limited to, specialty grains, beans & lentils, branded/natural/grass-fed meats, storable vegetables, and value added food products.

The first phase of the co-op will be to hire a marketing manager who will:

  1. Conduct market research & establish relationships on behalf of producer members with stores, restaurants, and institutional food services in the region.
  2. Maintain the Farm-to-Table web site and update the Local Buyer's Guide to promote members' products and the businesses/institutions that purchase from the co-op.
  3. Work towards developing a cost effective distribution system within the region by partnering with existing distribution and transportation systems.

The co-op will offer some processing and packaging services, which will be expanded depending on need and available resources. Current services include custom label printing and co-packing for dry goods only, plus food quality grain and bean cleaning. We are also developing a Food Development Center in Glendive, which will be a fully equipped Commercial Kitchen Facility.
