What is the 805 Food Hub?
The 805 Food Hub is a collection of local farmers and producers engaged in the business of growing the most nutrient-dense, delicious food in ways that heal and rebuild degraded landscapes.
The 805 Food Hub works with select farmers and ranchers to bring the best produce, meat and eggs directly to you, our neighbors.
805 Food Hub customers can buy confidently knowing that their food is being sourced from farms located within our local foodshed, and produced in ways that increase soil health, improve water quality and enhance biodiversity - which ultimately means a better product at a better price for you!
We are beginning to expand and directly serve the local consumer market in the 805 after focusing on restaurants for the past two years, and we would love to serve you!

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
WHY CHOOSE US?
Just to be clear, we support any producer that is working towards a more local, sustainable and healthy food system, and any consumer that is moving in that same direction. We understand that everyone is at a different place along that spectrum.
Maybe you’re just starting out by choosing organic options whenever you can afford to?
Are you making the switch from a large chain grocery store to buying weekly at the farmer’s market? Subscribing to a CSA? Yes?!
Are you sourcing direct from farmers and purchasing in bulk to save money?
Now we’re talkin’!
What we are offering is the next step on that path. 805 Food Hub producers employ land management and production practices that go beyond organic and sustainable into what we call regenerative agriculture.
Regenerative Agriculture is a newcomer to the world of buzzwords. For our purposes, when we say something is produced in a “regenerative” manner we mean that it adds to and increases the resource base around it - such that by producing it there is more of what is needed to produce it, instead of less.
Regenerative agriculture is the opposite of extractive agriculture - which is basically how the dominant agri-culture has been doing things for the past few generations...and we know that isn’t going very well.
