Jefferson Food Co-op is a 16-family food buying club operating out of Sheepscot General Store on Townhouse Road in Whitefield, Maine, about 15 miles from Augusta, the state capital. We order from a full range of organic, natural and minimally processed grocery products, over 17,000 in all, ranging from bulk commodities and packaged goods of all kinds to dairy products, frozen entrees, fresh produce, dried fruits, beverages, snacks, personal hygiene products, vitamins and supplements, and environment-friendly household cleaning products. We also offer many products for those on gluten-free, lactose-free and other special diets.
Our distributor is United Natural Foods, Inc. ("UNFI"), one of the nation's largest natural food distributors. Each month we order directly from UNFI's web site. Case sharing is accomplished via discussion boards on our own web site. Breakdowns and order pickup take place at Sheepscot General.
We hold one annual business meeting per year, and one or more potluck dinners.
We don't charge any membership fees. The work requirement is light. All you need to join is a desire for good eating and healthy living! To get in touch and learn all the details, Contact Us.
