Meet The Member: Farm Direct Coop

Interviewees: Julie Pottier-Brown (she/her) & Tamara Sullivan (she/her)

In your words… Tell us about your organization, business, initiative.

The Farm Direct Coop is a woman-run, hybrid organization that is part CSA, part food hub, bringing super fresh local and organic produce from local farms to our communities.
We love to support & partner with other local businesses to bring the harvest to our members.

Tell us a bit about you and why you do what you do? Share your passions for your business, initiative, organization.

Many moons ago Tamara & Julie joined the FDC as young mothers. We were instantly in love and very quickly immersed ourselves. Feeding ourselves & families local and organic is important, and so is saving farmland, keeping water, wildlife & farm workers safe.

Over the years we have grown a little, then a lot & expanded to new communities. We love to solve logistic puzzles, and love to discover new products to introduce our members to.

What role do you think your business plays in supporting a more creative community? OR your community in general. (Bonus! Why do you think a more creative community is important?)

Farm Direct Coop is a great introduction to eating and buying local with the rhythm of the seasons. We partner with local bakeries, farms, shops & compost service to showcase the interconnected web of foods, products & services available to us on the North Shore. We encourage creativity in planning & cooking meals, and are wowed by what our members show us from the simple to the sublime.

We love to play with these partners in creative ways. Come along for the journey!
