Local Food Coalition
Working together to support local farmers, preserve local farms and farmland, and ensure a local food supply in the western Nevada County area of California.

Sierra Harvest
The Sierra Harvest mission is to educate, inspire, and connect Nevada County families to fresh, local, seasonal food.

As a community-owned cooperative, part of BriarPatch Food Co-op’s mission is to support our community while building our local economy.

Join us in connecting with local and regional farms, ranches, and businesses by looking for the local/regional signs and thinking local first as you shop.

Why Buy Local?

  • Local farms and ranches preserve the open land we all enjoy, while ensuring a local food supply… plus the food is fresher and tastes better!
  • Local farms and businesses create local jobs, support local charities, and build our local economy.
  • Local farms and businesses keep more money in the community, so we all live better!

We support local farmers by:

  • Providing a stable market.
  • Paying fair prices.
  • Planning for crops we need.
  • Teaching retail practices.
  • Guaranteeing farm loans.
  • Financing organic certification.
