Laughery Valley Growers
(Batesville,IN)The Laughery Valley Growers is a multi-farm agricultural cooperative owned by the coop members who grow produce for the CSA shares. A Board of Directors elected by coop members/growers leads the cooperative. All growers meet in the fall to make their produce commitments for the next growing season which determines how many shares to sell. An Executive Director (annual stipend) manages the direct market operation and a finance manager (annual stipend) handles subscribers' fee payments and growers' sales payments. A part-time paid CSA Coordinator/Manager and Assistant Manager handles the ordering and packing of produce during the growing season. Part-time contract labor is hired for the Wednesday packing tasks. In partnership with EllenBee Leggett Company and The Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, this coop also packs CSA boxes for employees of that hospital as a wellness program sponsored by hospital adminstrators. In 2012, Cincinnati State College also offered CSA boxes to its employees. Information about the coop and its CSA program can be found on the coop's website, www.laugheryvalleygrowers.com and on www.foodandgrowers.org.
