This is a co-operative of small family farms, nurseries, and market gardens that have come together to streamline your local food ordering needs.
One platform, one transaction, one pickup, multiple producers!

Sign up for our weekly newsletter to stay up to date on co-op happenings and to be reminded to order your local food weekly. Our online store is always open and we schedule pickups and deliveries on Wednesdays and Fridays. Click on shop now and choose which day you would like to order for, order the items you would like, then choose the location you would like to pickup or choose delivery. There is no membership fee for shoppers! Producers then gather before your pickup or delivery to pack your bag together. Each order cycle ends the day before so that our producers have time to harvest and package your items.

How We Work Together

The Torch Lake Co-op formed in 2020, and it has worked so well for shoppers and producers alike that we have made it into a legacy project! Shop for local food groceries twice a week, year-round with convenient pickups and delivery options all around our local area, see map above. This is an amazingly efficient way to plan your seasonal menus and buy your local food and plants from farmers, growers, and chefs,
all in one place!
Please join our weekly newsletter to keep up to date with co-op news. You can find a signup on the FAQ page.

Spring Plant Catolog

Our Spring Plant Catalog is a look book that introduces all the plants produced by the growers of the Torch Lake Co-op. On Earth Day the online store plant cycles open so you can schedule and purchase your spring starts. First available pickup is on May 19th 2023, but order early to ensure you get what you want. Let our nurseries take care of your seedlings and transplants until you're ready- you can make multiple orders with different pickup days so you can plan your gardening time and not get overwhelmed with too many plants on one day.
