The Collaborative Farming Podcast

Mar 17, 2022

Aliments Farmhouse Food is a multifarm cooperative of seven farm members co-markting their produce, meat, dairy, and more through a home delivery CSA to some three to four hundred members throughout Ottawa, Canada.

I talk to farmer member and general manager Leela Ramachandran about how it all began and has grown over the last few years, leveraging the low overhead of direct to consumer delivery to reach beyond traditional markets, the balance between standard boxes and efficiency vs customization and complexity, the roles and responsibilities of the farmer members and staff, logistics, and a whole lot else.
