"Open Harvesters! You are kind, wonderful, helpful people who provide the backbone of the co-op that has been a staple of my life as long as I've lived in Lincoln. I'm always amazed by how quickly any question I ask is answered, by your knowledge of the inventory, & by how many people recognize me & even immediately direct me to what I've come for if it's been recently moved when I stop in. My entire family is hopelessly devoted to you; if my mother can't get her mixed organic baby carrots, there's some serious grumpiness going on. Thank you for all you do, & for keeping us safe & fed in ... See more

We are proud to be part NCG and one of the 147 food co-ops across the US supporting our community ❤️

The COVID-19 pandemic has already illustrated something that food co-ops have long known to be true—grocery stores are pillars of our communities—and grocery store employees are the ones who bring community care and leadership to life.

What is a Co-Op?

The 7 Co-op Principles

Like all cooperatives, Open Harvest operates under the following guiding principles.

Voluntary and Open Membership

We are a voluntary organization, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political, or religious discrimination.

Democratic Member Control

We are a democratic organization controlled by our members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership.

Members’ Economic Participation

Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of the cooperative. The economic benefits of a cooperative operation are returned to the members, reinvested in the co-op, or used to provide member services.

Autonomy and Independence

Cooperatives are autonomous, self-help organizations controlled by their members. If they enter into agreements, they do so on terms that ensure democratic control by their members and maintain their cooperative autonomy.

Education, Training and Information

Cooperatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their cooperatives. They inform the general public about the nature and benefits of cooperation.

Cooperation Among Cooperatives

Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.

Concern for Community

While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies approved by their members.
