Community Cider Backyard Fruit Drive

Apple Outlaw Cider, in collaboration with the local community, is setting out for the second year to create a one of a kind hard cider, dubbed “Apple Outlaw Community Cider”. Soon neighborhood fruit trees will paint the sidewalk and backyard fallen fruit will be ripe pickings for the deer. Instead of letting your downtrodden pears, plums and apples go to waste, bring them to the Co-op for collection where Apple Outlaw is ready to help you turn that fruit into something more.

Place your unwanted fruit in cardboard boxes and bring it to the large wooden apple crate in front of the Co-op on one of the following weekends.

  • August 25 - 27
  • September 15 - 17
  • October 13 -15

Apple Outlaw will collect your fruit, press and ferment it at their 8-acre orchard and ciderhouse in the Applegate Valley. Last year we collected over 2,500 pounds of fruit for the first ever Community Cider. All the fruit was generously donated by YOU, the amazing Rogue Valley community. In that same spirit of community, Apple Outlaw donated a portion of the proceeds from the cider to the Ashland Food Project, just over $800 to be exact. 

If all goes well, you'll be sipping on a Community Cider come February.

Co-op Blog

How often can you browse the shelf at your neighborhood grocery store, see a bottle of hand crafted, local cider and say, “Hey, I help make that!” Well, at the Co-op you can.

Many of us wait all year for this moment. We spend the winter months dreaming of a certain fuzzy stone fruit, its sweet juices dripping from our face and the buttery golden pie crust those yellow-orange slices will inhabit.

The Ashland Food Co-op Board of Directors is pleased to announce the results of the 2017 Board Election. There were five excellent candidates running for three Board positions. In total, 733 votes were cast, representing 9% of owners. 
 

Deep in our hearts we've always known we were sustainability stars, but now we have an award to prove it.

We recently received a Co+efficient Sustainability Star award from National Co-op Grocers (NCG) recognizing our positive environmental and community impacts.

It’s the most wonderful time of year! Yes, we know that phrase is generally reserved for the holiday season. But for us, this truly is the most wonderful time of the year. It’s OUR season of giving.

Did you know that approximately half of our landfill waste stream is composed of Deli trash? A significant part of that is “to-go” containers, which are sometimes used for dining in and don’t end up “going” very far at all.

Meet Your Candidates
The Co-op Board is pleased to announce that we have 5 candidates for 3 open seats in the 2017 Board Election!

The sun is (mostly) out and the weather is finally getting warmer. That must mean summer is right around the corner, right? We sure hope so. We’re ready to grill, soak up some sun and enjoy the many fruits and vegetables that are in season. Our Floral Coordinator, Rachel Chastain, shares some of her favorites.

Sustainability is not a new concept at the Co-op. It has always been part of our DNA. We’ve been using sustainable business practices before it was the “cool”, “responsible” thing to do. In fact, the Co-op was founded 45 years ago largely on the principles of sustainable, local organic food production as an alternative to modern industrial agriculture.  

For 45 years we’ve been loving local and fostering community. Throughout our almost half a century history, our identity and logo has gone through many iterations.

Some of you might remember the logo above from our newsletter in the early 1980s.
