Founded in 2015, True Food is this region’s first food hub centered around a multi-farm CSA. We are committed to a values-driven mission to build a community around our local farms.  We strongly believe our strength as a company is only as strong as the relationships we build between our community and our local farmers.

True Food’s purpose is to grow market access and build economic sustainability for our local farms while increasing access to locally grown food for all.  Our local food system depends on sustainable family farms, the ones tucked away in our landscape protecting our environment and feeding our communities.  Our pricing considers the costs of running a sustainable business, enabling us to continue to serve the community and offer our local farmers a fair and equitable price.
