When I’ve been asked why our coop has a Sister Co-op, the short answer is, because “it is what we do.” One of our guiding principles is to help other co-ops, but I believe that as a co-operative community and as part of a cooperative movement we look for alternatives to build a prosperous equitable community and for sincere ways to connect and respond to need at home and abroad with the intention of empowering each other.
Everyday Low Prices For Everyone! The Buffalo Basics program is a selection of staple foods and other products priced below retail to provide the same great savings to everyone who wants to shop at the Co-op.

Welcome new products from Tony’s Chocolonely, big chocolate bars with a big mission. Tony’s mission: “As a chocolate company we lead by example and activate industry, politics and consumers to bring about change. Alone we make slave free chocolate, together we make all chocolate 100% slave free. Not just our chocolate. No. All chocolate worldwide. When there is really no more slavery in the chocolate industry, then we will have achieved our goal.”
A Delegation from Buffalo Mountain is traveling to visit our Sister Coop in Puerto Rico, February 28th through March 5th. The delegation will meet with members of the Puerto Rican cooperative community. They will help coop members as best they can in multiple ways including clearing away downed trees, planting and rebuilding after the hurricanes. They will then report back to our community here about what they have learned from their experiences.
