We are pretty excited about our new IFC logo tees, and to celebrate, we are giving one away.
Check out our Facebook page and ‘Like’ the t-shirt photo to be entered; we will draw one name
after the cart closes.

In the meantime, why leave things to chance when you can just add one
to your cart?
They sell for $12-14 (depending on size), are 100% cotton, and produced by a Des Moines screenprinter, featuring the art
of IFC member Rick Vonholdt.

¬†We also want you to win a gift bag…

Watch for details on the Facebook page and website; we will draw a name from all members who place an order this cycle. If we choose you, you’ll get a bag of some of our favorite local products.

A big November at the Co-op!

We had a record shopping cycle in November, totaling over $19,000! A huge thanks to our members and producers for making Co-op history.

Channel 13 even stopped by and did a story:

A big welcome to new producers Grimm Family Farm + Mo’Rub

Locally grown dry beans–finally!

Meet Grimm Family Farm, out of Coraliville. Owner Jason also helps manage the Iowa Valley Food Co-op. This cycle he is offering dry black turtle beans from his third generation farm, which he operates along with his family.

You’re gonna want Mo’!


And a friendly welcome to the folks who make up Mo’Rub. We are happy to welcome Steph and Monty aboard, along with their famous universal seasoning. In their words:
What was created as a rub for pork has truly become a seasoning that’s great on anything! Folks put it on their eggs in the morning and popcorn at night.’


Last but not least, happy holidays from the Iowa Food Cooperative! We wish you and your family well this season and thank you for your support.
