Grindstone Farm's Wholeshare Group is an extension of Grindstone Farm's offering of local organic offerings. Wholeshare is an independent business working in conjunction with various businesses, like Tierra Farms and Regional Access, a NY based food distributor founded with the goal of providing a wide selection of organic and locally produced foods. This is just one of many buying groups statewide Wholeshare has organized.
Everything from frozen veggies, dried fruits, locally grown and milled flours from Farmer Ground Flour, to organic dairy from Hawthorne Valley, and live ferment krauts and pickles made by Bad Ass Organics, and countless other NY farms and producers. Buy in bulk, individual items, or split cases with other group members, the buying options are numerous and delicious!

What is Wholeshare?
"Wholeshare is a website that helps you get access to good quality, affordable local food by organizing group purchases. Consumers face two main problems when it comes to local and sustainable food. The first is that good quality food is often hard to find. Large areas of the country dont have good access to local foods. The second problem is that when you do find it, it's often at premium prices. That pricing discrepancy often encourages people to go with more conventional options.
Wholeshare solves both these problems by allowing people to order food online as part of a group. By shopping as a group, everyone increases their purchasing power. Your group places larger orders than you could on your own and as a result, it becomes worthwhile for farmers and other local food producers to come deliver directly to you and your group. Also, because you're able to go direct to the source you cut out costly portions of your supply chain, which means you save money without shortchanging the producers. "
Grindstone Farm's Wholeshare Group was started in the spring of 2011, as a way to make more local organic food available to Grindstone Farm's customers. Wholeshare works independently with local food distributors to offer wholesale prices to consumers. More info can be found at grindstonefarm.com and wholeshare.com .
