Homegrown Co-op in Orlando

For those looking for food options outside of going to the grocery stores, you might want to check out the Homegrown Local Food Cooperative known as the Homegrown Co-op for short. The Co-op is a composed of a crack squad of individuals that collect food products including breads, cheeses, meats, and produce that are either manufactured locally or grown locally and sell them online or retail them out of their store.

You can order over 1,000 products online from over 50 different vendors, and you can either have the food delivered to your home or you can pick up the food yourself at their location on Orange Avenue in a little yellow building just North of Princeton. The idea behind the Co-op is that if the food has fewer miles to travel from the producer to the end user, its healthier for the end user to eat. That is because a short travel time between producer to end user eliminates the need for preservatives and it prevents foods from losing too many nutrients by not sticking them in storage for weeks at a time.

Using local producers helps not only to reduce the carbon footprint. Most of the food found at the Co-op is organic and produced with locally grown ingredients. Its a great place to go for grass-fed meat, free-range chicken, and free-range chicken eggs, locally produced bread products, and local produce in the Orlando area.
