Anniversary Celebration

Next month, West Michigan Co-op will celebrate its fifth anniversary. One way that we are recognizing this milestone is by doing a membership drive. Every new member who signs up and shops between November 1 and December 21 (December pick-up night) will receive a thank you gift. In addition, each current member who refers a new member will also receive a thank you gift.

The thank you gift will be a product from one of our wonderful producers. There will be a variety of gifts including: lettuce, lamb burgers, soup, a bar of soap, all purpose cleaner, and more!

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more details & updates about the Anniversary Celebration

Welcome Our Two Newest Producers

The Co-Op is happy to welcome two new producers, Woods Farms and Videtich Apiaries!

Woods Farms is located between Torch Lake, Elk Lake and Grand Traverse Bay and they produce pure maple syrup. Their syrup is available during this month's shopping cycle and I can't wait to try it! Click here to view all their available products.

Videtich Apiaries provides pollination services to numerous local farmers by bringing hives to their fields. Once the bees have pollinated the crops in these fields the hives are moved to forests and grasslands and the bees make honey- pure, raw honey that you can now get at the Co-Op! Click here to view all their available products.

Tomorrow is the last day for shopping during this month's cycle, so get your order in soon and don't forget to add some honey and syrup to your cart! And make sure you stop by the tables for Woods Farms and Videtich Apiaries on pick-up night to welcome these two new producers.
