CFC Farm & Home Co-op



The CFC Farm & Home Co-op opened its doors to the farmers of Culpeper in 1932. Today, it's no longer just for farmers and ranchers. The Co-op now sells not only feed and tack, but clothing and hats, house paint, cookbook, specialty toys and many other items for both farm and home. The CFC runs a Wednesday Farmers Market from the spring through the early fall as well as a community garden for local residents. The Culpeper Farmers' Cooperative was created in the midst of the Great Depression when local farmers organized to pool their resources and production. While it was too expensive for each farmer to manufacture products or undertake a service on his own, the Culpeper Farmers' Cooperative provided a means for farmers to join together to achieve a better financial outcome than by going it alone. A local farmer could save much in the purchase of seeds, machinery, and other farming supplies by being a member of the Co-op. In that spirit, the Co-op still serves the community.
