HPFC is a grassroots network of High Plains and Rocky Mountain Front Range producers and consumers uniting interests in locally grown food and other locally made products. The HPFC strives to be a business that is environmentally sustainable, economically viable, and socially just. To foster a local food community and promote a culture of stewardship by cultivating farmer-consumer relationships, promoting the enjoyment of healthful food, increasing food security through diversity, and enhancing overall rural sustainability. The High Plains Food Cooperative is committed to developing a self-reliant, self-empowering community, by offering a retail exchange to the Front Range of Colorado for goods and services which are grown, produced, traded, and distributed locally, in a sustainable, equitable, and responsible manner.
We value resource and raw material renew-ability by encouraging recycling and the re-use of materials. We believe the long-term cost to society of landfills and waste disposal must not be passed on to future generations.
We support ethical and healthy animal husbandry practices and believe that harmful or cruel treatment of animals is undesirable behavior in a sustainable economy.
We celebrate the cultural diversity of the High Plains and seek to create a marketplace reflective of this diversity. We encourage members to strengthen their cross-cultural understanding by experiencing the variety goods and services that are offered.
We operate our coop autonomously, independently, efficiently, and transparently; and pledge to maintain a supportive environment that fosters goodwill, cooperation, and participation among our members, staff, other cooperatives, and the community at large. We value the opinions and voices of all our members.
The High Plains Food Cooperative believes in the power of individual creativity and self-determination. We value simplicity, authenticity, and genuine craftsmanship, and promote the local community and the local producer whenever possible.
All producer members of HPFC encourage the consumer members to contact them directly with questions about their products and/or visit their farms. You KNOW the story behind your food when you are a member of High Plains Food Coop.
