FEED Sonoma is a values-driven for-profit business. We define our profit in more than just economic terms. FEED Sonoma carries out its mission by developing and maintaining trusting, transparent, and collaborative relationships throughout the value chain, in order to promote and contribute to a thriving, community-based, secure local food system.
Social capital is the foundation of our business and it allows us to flex, shift, and respond to the dynamic and unpredictable nature of the local food value chain. As we cultivate trust and demonstrate success, the farmers we work with are able to confidently increase their production and buyers are able to rely on us for their procurement needs, with all parties knowing that we are growing our businesses in partnership with one another.
