We are thrilled to announce our newest partnership with Grass Roots Farmers' Cooperative this month with the launch of their newest product: Coffee Rub Bacon. This collaboration could not be a better fit through our shared values and vision to build a better supply chain for farmers around the world.
We first met Grass Roots founder Cody Hopkins as he was just starting to build the dream of the farmer cooperative. Pachamama CEO Thaleon Tremain and Cody were introduced due to the shared pursuit for farmers to take control of their own future and work directly with consumers. We couldn’t imagine a better month than October to launch this partnership as we enter into Cooperative Month and exemplify the 6th cooperative principle Cooperation Among Cooperatives.
Why We Love Grass Roots
Grass Roots is a farmer owned cooperative here in the US. They are composed of family farmers from the Oregon Coast all the way to the Ozark mountains who are committed to growing food the right way: prioritizing the health of the planet, the food we eat and the people living within the land. They are committed to regenerative agriculture practices that “steps away from industrial, chemical and pesticide-based agriculture that degrades the land. Instead of degenerative farming, regenerative practices act to heal the landscape—farmers are able to naturally and ethically produce higher quality, much tastier meat.” Read more about the farming movement and Grass Roots values here
The Grass Roots team of skilled kitchen masters chose the Pachamama Harvest Blend to elevate the natural flavors of the bacon with the coffee’s notes of almond and caramel. The pork belly is smoked and coated with their coffee rub and then sliced and packaged to deliver straight to your door. We can confirm this is some of the best bacon on the market and can’t wait for you to try it. You can shop the bacon launch and other amazing products here.
