Clarion River Organics
Living Soils. Healthy Plants. Vibrant Life.
Family Owned. All of our farms are family owned and operated. Most of the families are Amish and all of them practice organic farming principals. Our Amish farmers use horse farming and ice houses for much of their storage, these farms produce abundantly while using a smaller amount of fuels and electricity.
All of Clarion River Organics' farmers share a philosophy of caring for the soil to keep it "living," and they want to keep their sales local. For both of these reasons our farmers are doing their part to care for the Earth while making a living doing what they love.
Only the Best
Clarion River Organics is a grower's cooperative; which simply means we are a group of farms working together. The main reason for working together, other than the fact that most of our farmers are friendly neighbors and/or relatives of each other, is to have a shared system of distribution.
Since most of our farms are small and diversified, it would be prohibitively expensive for them to each have to make all of their own sales and deliveries. By forming a cooperative, the farmers can pool all of their produce together, making it easier to plan and coordinate their growing plans, lowering each of their costs of sales and distribution, and creating a cooperative that has a wider range of products available over a longer season and so is more attractive to consumers.
In addition to all of those benefits, having managers take care of sales and distribution gives the farmers more time to concentrate on what they really care about--growing quality local produce with their families.
