Western Montana Growers Cooperative (WMGC) is a coalition of growers in the Flathead, Jocko, Mission and Bitterroot Valleys whose goal is to provide the market in our region with fresh, quality products from our farms. To reach that goal, the cooperative provides a wholesale marketing and delivery service for its members. We strive to improve the local food system of our area by enhancing the sustainability of local farms and contributing to local economic growth while reducing the demand of produce being shipped here from long distances.
WMGC is farmer-owned and supplies a full plate of Montana-grown products including fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, milk, cheese, eggs, lentils, honey, meats and other value-added items. Our passionate staff members collaborate closely with our farmers and food producers to ensure seamless service from pre-harvest to delivery at your door.
Since 2003, we have worked hard to develop deep and lasting relationships with our customers. WMGC now serves grocery stores, restaurants, and institutions across Montana and into Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington.
In addition to supplying the wholesale market with fresh, local food, we also deliver to individual community members through our multi-farm Community-Supported Agriculture, or CSA, program.
By providing a marketing and delivery service, WMGC allows member farms to concentrate on producing great local food while making it more accessible to buyers. Our customers have access to all of our farms with one sales transaction and one delivery. WMGC believes in making fresh and nutritious local food available to our community, while fairly supporting local agricultural producers. This business model makes this goal possible.
