  • Natural Grocers Brand Product tastings every Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

This is the second year in a row that Natural Grocers is sponsoring a month-long national fundraiser for the Organic Farmers Association (OFA). This year's fundraiser goal is to raise $50,000 for the OFA during the month of September.  "There are only about 17,000 certified organic farms in the United States, compared to the more than two million conventional farms," said Heather Isely, Natural Grocers' Executive Vice President. "The Organic Farmers Association supports the organic farmer by elevating their influence on issues that matter to them. Better policy means more opportunities to increase organic acreage and improve the economic viability of organic farming methods, which makes organic farming a more attractive option."

Throughout September, Natural Grocers' customers will have the opportunity to make contributions at any one of Natural Grocers' 147 store locations. Donations to the OFA will help unite organic farms around the country, create scholarship programs, provide organic farmers with a national voice on state and federal policy, increase organic farm acreage and expand the number of organic family farms. Kate Mendenhall, Director of Organic Farmers Association, said: "Supporting this fundraiser is a great opportunity to vote with your dollars and tell America the kind of food system you want to see and support."
