Groundbreakers Collective is both a social enterprise cooperative and a charitable organization. The cooperative coordinates a Winter Harvest Box which provides customers with fresh seasonal produce and value-added products from September through May. Based on a CSA (community supported agriculture) model, customers pre-order and pre-pay for their box as well as work on local farms, helping connect producers and consumers and creating a sustainable local food network and resilient economy. Through the charity, Groundbreakers provides educational programs and hands-on workshops on food preservation as a means to learn about and make the most of local food all year round.

We have tried to build on what Don and Tom started here years ago. Our philosophy is somewhat simple, we try to work hard every day and provide straightforward communication with our customers. We tell our staff, ‘treat our customers like we ourselves would like to be treated.’

-Mitch, Tyler and Don Pederson, Co-owners, AquaNorth Plumbing and Heating
