Know Our Grower


The vitality and sustainability of our local food system depends on the presence of a diverse network of growers and the support of a dedicated consumer base. Seward Co-op’s annual Know Our Grower program is an opportunity to connect shoppers with the talented group of local farmers producing our food. This year we are pleased to present an extended program featuring more than 10 area growers over seven months. In addition to those farms growing during temperate months, we’re including growers that push the limits of our northern growing season by using hydroponic systems and greenhouses.

Visit the website often this summer to read interviews with featured Know Our Grower producers. Sample produce from these growers and get great sale prices on selected items.
