We are in the process of making a local food co-op a reality. Our vision is that our community-based store will provide convenient, year-round access to healthy, fresh, local, and organic products. We will work closely with our local producers and incorporate the feedback of our members in developing and designing our store and co-op community.
But we need your help today to make this a reality! We are actively looking for local families and individuals who value access to fresh, local, and organic products to become members of the co-op — so that we can secure a location and open the doors to our store. Learn more about our vision.
Join us TODAY. Or learn how you can get involved.
By joining now, you become an owner and founder of our store and co-op community. What does this mean?
Together, we'll be able to:
- Bring our community convenient access to freshly-picked, nutrient-dense produce, pasture-grazed meat, eggs and dairy, as well as bulk grains and dry goods.
- Ensure our farmers a consistent and reliable marketplace for their products, which can to be sold at a fair value so their farmland can be maintained — and even expanded.
- Provide a place for our community to vote with our food dollars and help shape our community’s future well-being.
- Help reduce our impact on the environment and retain the unique and historical character of our community.
- Make an economic difference in our community.
Did you know that national statistics show that 70 cents of every dollar spent at a co-op business goes back into supporting the local community?

Doylestown Food Co-op and Bucks County Foodshed Alliance present Locavore at County Theater.
On June 6 at 7:30p.m., the Doylestown Food Co-op and the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance will present Locavore, an inspiring and upbeat documentary about the benefits of returning home to our food supply.
Locavore is a documentary that takes an optimistic and informative approach to presenting the benefits of sourcing food locally. Digging deep into our basic human connection to the land and agrarian life, the film takes a positive look at the benefits to our health and to our communities when we reconnect with our farmers and local food producers.
Encouraging us as individuals and communities to incorporate food growing into our every day spaces, Locavore emphasizes the importance of rediscovering the basic gardening skills that we lost as a result of the industrialization.
The film is the second installment of the Farm Fresh Film Series, four documentary films that tackle the issues inherent in our food system today. Part of a community outreach project, the film series promotes the idea that what we put in our bodies impacts our health, our community, and our world. Each film is followed by a panel discussion, and we encourage the community to ask questions and participate in the conversation.
We thank our "kale sponsors", Natural Awakenings and Doc Baker's Farmulations, for their support!
Cost: $10 ($8 for Co-op members).
Here's our flyer for the event. Download it and share it with your friends!
When I was a vegetarian, I was always faced with the dilemma of getting enough protein. I loved eggs, but was appalled with the treatment of the hens. Almost right after becoming a vegetarian, I thought, wouldn’t it be great to have my own hens to lay eggs? It was...
We had a party and lots of people came! There was amazing local food and local music at a local venue supported by people who all appreciate one or the other (or both) and came out to show that support in droves to raise money for the Doylestown Food Co-op!...
