Gila Farm Cooperative

Gila Farm Cooperative is committed to sustainable, local agriculture and does not use chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides on crops. We use organic fertilizers and sell locally at farmers' markets, grocery stores and restaurants. Gila Farm Cooperative runs a CSA where interested customers can get a bag of the latest produce fresh picked on the day of delivery.

Gila Farm Cooperative is a group of refugee farmers resettled in Central Arizona. The farm where Gila Farm Cooperative primarily raises crops is located in Pinal County, just south of Phoenix.

Gila Farm Cooperative's farmers hail from Bhutan, Burma, Congo, Cuba, Eritrea, Iraq, Liberia, Sudan, Somalia, Togo, and Uzbekistan; bringing with them decades of experience working with the land and growing diverse crops. The farmers have left behind countries torn by war, oppression, political upheaval, and natural disaster to pursue life in the United States. Many of them find peace and joy in farming, an activity that provides continuity with their former lives.
