Distributors of Regional & Organic Produce and Products (DROPP) - our coop's food hub - has just moved into Liberty Exchange thanks to our forever helpful and supportive board member Mark Estee ... With a loading dock and plenty of storage space, aggregation and distribution of local food has never been easier.  Not to mention that we got our first refrigerated truck this week and will be delivering to the Playa!!!!! Buying and supporting local food and farmers is just a few clicks away.  Check out our link in bio to learn more about DROPP and remember to ask the folks at your favorite restaurants if they serve any local food.  Consumers will always drive the market in what they request and more so in how they vote with their purchasing dollars.

This image represents small acts done consistently with great love. ❤️💙 Bill Mewaldt of Mewaldt Organics, Spencer Scott of NV Ag, Shelly Goodin of New Harvest Farm & DROPP's new truck driver and Nicole Sallaberry, our DROPP manager and one of Northern Nevada's most dedicated local food entrepreneurs and advocates.  #loveyourfarmer #DROPP #droppitlikeitshot

Meet our baker, Amelia!   Amelia specializes in crafting amazing traditional pastries, as well as a variety of gluten-free and vegan options, and has been instrumental in the expansion of the Co-op Kitchen's baked goods selection. Amelia started on her path at age 15, helping out in the school cafeteria during lunch, ultimately working her way to supplying croissants and brioche to L.A.'s best four- and five-star restaurants. Since returning to Reno, Amelia feels she hasn't "found [her] niche in a while, but GBCFC has been absolutely wonderful." In her work, Amelia emphasizes sustainable practices, making use of seasonal fruits and repurposed products from within the Co-op-- today's Reno Local Food Group bread is tomorrow's bread pudding. Welcome aboard, Amelia!

We visited Steve and Crystal Shore at Misty Crystal Ranch this week. They supply fresh goat milk and honey soap to our Wellness Department.  Be sure to check this stuff out if you want baby soft skin. 👶
It was a rad few hours of touring and chatting, learning about milk and soap, playing fetch with their energetic border collie, and watching goats suck on Scaught's fingers. Steve told us about a time when someone passing by their place didn't quite understand his "kids for sale" sign at the end of the driveway.  Fortunately somebody vouched for him actually selling young goats before Child Protective Services was brought into the picture. 😂
