Producer of the Month: Mi Tierra Tortillas PDF Print E-mail

By Ruth Garbus
May 2016

When I first encountered Mi Tierra tortillas, I knew they were special. Maybe it was the fragrant perfume of fresh corn that emanated from their packages (who knew corn had a fragrant perfume?!), perhaps it was the fact that they were delivered by a wild-haired-dirt-under-the-fingernails farmer, or maybe it was the name: Mi Tierra – Spanish for “my land.” Whatever it was, I have come to understand that my enthusiasm for these little golden rounds was not unfounded. The more I’ve learned about the people and the story behind them, the more I’ve grown to love Mi Tierra Tortillas. Jorge Sosa, Michael Docter, and so many others in the large and thriving Mi Tierra extended family have brought something truly unique and wonderful to your Co-op: real corn tortillas, made only with heirloom, non-GMO corn grown right here in the Connecticut River Valley, in the same way the native peoples of the Americas have been doing for thousands of years.

From the GM: Committment to Community: The Power of Local Investment PDF Print E-mail

“…Cooperatives empower their members and strengthen communities. They promote food security and enhance opportunities for small agricultural producers. They are better tuned to local needs and better positioned to serve as engines of local growth...”
~United Nations Secretary General’s message for International Day of Cooperatives, July 2012

We have seen signs sprouting up outside of large supermarkets touting their New England-grown items inside. Even a fast food company’s TV commercial was touting its purchase of North American beef.  You may not recognize it as such, but “local” is hot. As the food industry adjusts to a changing consumer, more and more multinational corporations are spending money to let their shoppers know that they too have local sensibilities, and that they too are supporting local farms.

Board of Directors Report: Perspectives from Co-op Shoppers PDF Print E-mail

 by Wesley Pittman
May 2016

I’ve been asking a random sample of Co-op members over the age of 60 how they shop our store and how they relate to our Co-op.  What I had in mind was to make a composite profile of a Co-op senior shopper.  I failed; there is no composite Co-op shopper over the age of 60.  Everyone I spoke with uses our Co-op in unique ways and has unique and often contradictory expectations of our store and our cooperative enterprise:  we want to buy and eat local and we want avocados year round; we want our association to offer a better, fairer marketplace than what is offered by the chains; and we want prices as low as those of traditional grocery stores.
