About Your Co-op

Welcome to a world of organic foods you can trust, and people who share your values.

We believe you can do good for your body, the environment, and Iowa’s economy when you shop your community-owned co-op. Not only do you get fresh, nutritious produce and meat, but you can rest easier knowing you are buying organic foods.

New Pioneer’s founders were committed to environmental stewardship and sought food that was naturally delicious and healthful. Today we maintain those same commitments, and over 30,000 community members own a share in this grocery store that reflects their values.

Owner or not, everyone’s welcome to shop with us.

Organic Pioneers

For over forty years, we’ve promoted and supported food production free of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Our vision of sustainable agriculture is foods free of chemical residue and air, earth, and groundwater free of agricultural contaminants.

More Than a Grocery Store

“Co-ops are independent, locally controlled organizations created for the benefit of their owners. As a consumer-owned and democratically governed organization, New Pioneer can focus on things other than just profit generation.

The Co-op supports numerous community and school gardens, funds full-time staff for education and outreach, pays fair prices to local farmers, and supports benefits for employees well above the grocery industry norm. Co-operatives don’t simply appear different, thanks to some image makeover – they fundamentally are different.” – Matt Hartz, New Pi General Manager
