Nourish Cooperative is a real food community founded by the 'Strong Sistas' Ashley and Sarah Armstrong. Embarking on a journey rooted in their shared passion for health, sustainability, and community, Ashley and Sarah joined forces with Isaac Tobin & family (a fellow first generation farmer) to create Nourish, an innovative regenerative farm cooperative, born from a collective desire to revolutionize the way families nourish themselves while embracing the natural wisdom of the land.
Our Vision for Nourishing Families
At the heart of Nourish Cooperative lies a vision that transcends the ordinary. We recognized the profound impact that food choices have on individual health, well-being and the environment. Driven by this understanding, we embarked on a mission to provide families with a transformative experience – one that reconnects them with the essence of real, unadulterated food and has the potential to radically improve their health.
Regenerative Farming for a Sustainable Future
Nourish Cooperative stands as a beacon of regenerative farming practices, a commitment to cultivating food in harmony with nature. By eschewing toxic inputs and embracing methods that mimic the natural rhythms of Mother Nature, our partnership of small, like-minded farms ensure that every product is a testament to the resilience and vitality of regenerative agriculture.
Low PUFA Real Food: Nurturing Health from Within
Understanding that food is more than sustenance – it's medicine – is one of our primary priorities as we build out offerings from Nourish. A huge emphasis of ours is to maintain the standard of low PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids) content in our food. With unwavering dedication, we have curated a selection of offerings that prioritize this standard -- ranging from items such as chicken to milk. By providing food rich in nutrients and low in harmful PUFAs, we empower families to make informed choices that support long-term well-being.
No Toxic Inputs, Only Healthy Outcomes
All of Nourish products are made with zero toxic inputs - no chemicals, solvents, pesticides, herbicides, vaccines, antibiotics, GMOs, stabilizers, filler feeds, and so on. We pride ourselves in being completely toxin-free, so our members can rest assured that the product they're nourishing themselves & their family with is 100% clean and health promoting - a rare thing to come by these days.
A Hub of Connection and Accessibility
Nourish Cooperative transcends the conventional boundaries of a farm. We recognized the need of community and partnership soon at our beginnings, when realizing the demand for this type of farming and food is high, but it takes more than two sisters, and even more than just two farms. Hence, Nourish is a vibrant hub where community, education, and accessibility converge. Through workshops, events, and an open-door policy, we have cultivated a space where families can engage with their food source, learn about regenerative practices, and truly understand the journey from soil to table. Further, we help fellow farmers transform their current practices to become more regenerative, which will help make a larger impact on the world. Stay tuned for future opportunities for farm stays and hands on farming experiences for our members!
Our Carefully Crafted Partnerships
We carefully source our products from small family farms that utilize regenerative farming practices. Through a rigorous vetting process, we ensure that these farms provide healthy living conditions for their animals without the use of toxic chemicals on the land, and without hormones, antibiotics, mRNAs, and other medications. By paying our partner farms above market prices, we enable them to sustain their operations, contributing to the longevity of their farms.
Rest assured, we take care of the vetting process so you can enjoy our products with confidence, knowing that each product reflects our commitment to responsible sourcing.
Cultivating a Movement
The story of Nourish Cooperative is a testament to the power of collaboration, shared values, and a steadfast belief in positive change. We have ignited a movement that stretches beyond the boundaries of our farms – a movement that envisions a world where families are nourished by food that heals, sustains, and uplifts.
