Sourcing Local Foods
The Chatfield Farms Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program has been growing produce for its shareholders since 2010. Our farm provides fresh vegetables, flowers and herbs. To offer our shareholders additional items—like eggs, mushrooms and fruit—we partner with local and regional producers. Until recently, we sourced these items from multiple growers and ranchers, which required a lot of administrative and logistical coordination. This year we are proud to partner with East Denver Food Hub (EDFH) for eggs, fruit, microgreens and even flour grown and milled in Colorado.
Co-founded in 2020 by David Demerling and Roberto Meza, EDFH is a social enterprise working to develop a resilient, equitable and compassionate local food (eco)system based on inclusion, environmental stewardship, sustainable technologies and private/public partnerships. EDFH is committed to building a model for local food aggregation and distribution, as well as educating the public on the value of supporting and investing in local farms. They work to demystify food supply chains, address food insecurity, support the viability of local agriculture and develop community wealth-building initiatives to promote economic justice in our communities. EDFH currently sources items like meat, beans, flour and produce from over 35 local producers.
