Our Mission

Our mission is to make good food accessible by giving you the tastes to drive your desire to eat better.



Company Profile

Basic Roots Community Foods was started in December of 2005 to address the needs of the lack of good, local foods. Basic Roots is supported by a network of approximately 75 growers, locally & regionally, to provide year round farm fresh goodies.

Currently we have monthly subscriptions available, with a delivery of once monthly. By subscribing, members reap the health benefits of eating local & natural foods while helping to build a sustainable community of farmers. As we continue to grow our network of farmers, many of whom are planting seeds of diverse, heirloom crops specifically for us, we will be able to offer a variety of choices weekly, rather than monthly. 

Each delivery includes a copy of the Digest This! newsletter filled with food facts & recipes.
