Our vision is to be a community of family farms on the Clarion River cooperating to protect the watershed, produce high quality foods, and maintain a natural agrarian family life.
Our mission is to apply the most holistic and natural farming techniques to maintain soil life and plant health, to provide the most nutritious, best tasting products, and to share the vibrant farm life by facilitating direct personal experiences of connection between customer, farmer, and land.
Clarion River Organics is a grower's cooperative; which simply means we are a group of farms working together. The main reason for working together, other than the fact that most of our farmers are friendly neighbors and/or relatives of each other, is to have a shared system of distribution.
You can find our food in a number of different places and ways:
