How it works…
Bringing together the best ingredients makes for good eating. A great chef knows that each component of a dish must play its part toward the creation of a delicious meal. The Nebraska Food Cooperative (NFC) brings together producers and consumers who care about the land, share an enjoyment of simple food, and seek equitable relationships. NFC is a marketing and distribution service designed to improve market access for farmer producers and local food access for consumers. Please join us in our local food commitment.
Producers (farmers and ranchers) across Nebraska grow fresh food and list it on the NebraskaFood.org website. Customers can read about each producer’s growing practices in regard to chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics, etc., and judge for themselves the best products for their family. Products range from natural and organic meats, eggs, artisan cheeses, fruit, herbs, breads, coffees, grains, jams/jellies, personal care products, and all types of in-season vegetables — really, anything that is Nebraska rasied or grown with foremost attention to its healthy and nutritious aspects.
The NFC website is open every other week for customers to order food directly from producers. The ability to order in the comfort of your home year round attracts many followers. Many people like to get into the habit of thinking: “Sunday is my NFC ordering day.” Customers can contact producers by email with questions or attach a specific message to an ordered product.
Invoices are prepared after ordering is “closed” Sunday evening. After the ordering cycles “closes”, producers fill each order with any specific instructions in mind. Producers may need to adjust some invoices to include credits for sold-out products and/or calculated weights for others.
NFC arranges for product pick-up directly from each producer. The delivery driver carefully sorts and delivers the products to the customer’s designated pick-up location. Four different payments options are offered: 1) existing PayPal account, 2) credit card via PayPal, 3) cash, or 4) check. Just give your PayPal receipt, cash, or check to the pick-up site coordinator of your selected location when picking up your food.
Finally, enjoy the fresh, local goodness from Nebraska producers you know and trust.
Simple… directly from the farmer to you.
