The West Georgia Farmers Cooperative is working to build a community that can eat what it grows and have economic opportunities because of that farm space. They "strive to keep our wealth where we live" so families can be nourished and grow. As the West Georgia Farmers Cooperative continues to grow, they are building an infrastructure to support local businesses and the production of food. The cooperative was founded in 1968 and has recently experienced new growth and interest. They urge eating healthful, local produce as preventative medication and are driven by the idea of "Your local farmer, Your local food."
