About the Co-op

 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 your purchases of organic, sustainable, local, and Fair Trade products are working to build a brighter future.

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 35,000 community members own a share in this grocery store.

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