Our Mission

To inspire the growth of healthy communities by connecting people with a market for creativity and a successful model of economic development.

To educate others about the buy-local movement and offer exceptional customer service, while leading the way for socially-conscious businesses.

To foster an environment that helps small business people thrive, preserves our rural culture, and promotes a healthy work/life balance for our employees, who are at the core of what we do.
