Please come in and pick up one of our new membership forms or ask one of the staff for more details.

Omega 3: Did you know?

Do you get enough omega 3 fatty acids in your diet? Did you know that these are the only essential nutrients that your bod NEEDS but does not manufacture? A lack of omega 3s can cause a variety of symptoms from depression, skin disorders, cardiovascular disease and an inability to concentrate. To learn more click here. Due to popular request, your co-op just started stocking Nordic Naturals omega 3 fish oil and cod liver oil. We also carry a vegan omega 3 cultivated from algae. In our fridge section we have liquid flax oil (you can also special order this for better savings), In bulk we have walnuts and flax seeds, and in the freezer we have LOCAL grass-fed beef and lamb and wild coho salmon filets… all great sources of omega 3 fatty acids!

Save the Date

On Sept. 9 the USDA is hosting a Red Meat Mobile Slaughter Unit Information Session from 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. The goal of this information session is to educate local farmers, ranchers and processors on how to set up mobile slaughter units so that they can receive a federal grant of inspection and sell their goods to the public. For more information or to RSVP contact: Clint Koble 775.784.5411 ext.117
