Why Do People Support Our Co-Op?
Co-ops are a place where everyone is welcome. An inclusive, community-focused environment! They are owned by people in the community. People like you. People that want to support their local farmers and make their community an even better place!

— Chad & Anne Wingler
“I love my co-op because I love supporting local farms.”
— The Kaden Family
“...because Fuquay is our home and we want to make it better.”
— The Johnson Family
No! In fact, we encourage you to learn what the co-op is all about before making the decision to become an owner. And even then, you don't have to become an owner.

Why Become an Owner Now?
Those who become owners during our early development phases are integral. Without you, we will never open our community-owned food co-op (which would be truly unthinkable!).
Our owners play a crucial role in defining our future.
Becoming an owner is easy and affordable.
And being an owner can be a fun, rewarding experience!
Best of all, you’ll feel good sharing in the bounty of a business that will be locally owned forever; a business with integrity that supports the local community and at the same time builds connections with our local growers!
What our Owners love about their co-op...
“...Low prices comparable to grocery store chains + Natural food products = Good for us and good for our community.”
— The Brem Family
“I love my co-op because supporting small business makes sense.”
— Anna Campbell
“...it allows the choice of local foods that support the people who work the land and raise the animals that contribute to the healthy environment of Fuquay-Varina.”
— Candace Barringer
We already have more than 500 owners! But we still need more. If you're passionate about good, healthy food, supporting local farmers, and building our community, then you're just who we are looking for!
