Eco-Friendly Notes

The Owens Valley Growers Cooperative’s mission is to build a local, sustainable food system. Through community education, support of local agriculture, and the development of local market outlets, we aim to increase access to healthy food choices. 

By developing sources for locally grown food, OVGC reduces dependence on oil and builds a sustainable food shed. OVGC growers use water non-conventional water conservation practices, including deep soil building, and organic and pesticide-free growing methods.

Locally or Family Owned Business Notes

Owens Valley Growers Cooperative is composed of twenty small farmers and artisan food producers who reside between Big Pine and Olancha. By collaborating to develop locally grown food in the Owens Valley, these small business owners aim to improve food choices available to both their own communities and to tourists visiting the region.

Two of our farms are located near prominent trailheads and offer vacation cabin rental:  DelaCour Ranch on Horseshoe Meadow Road in Lone Pine offers u-pick lavender in June and eco-tours year around; Glacier Botanicals is a family owned farm located just below Glacier Lodge in Big Pine.  

ADA Accessibility Notes

Both the Independence and Lone Pine Markets are accessible.

hi, i am moving to the burro rescue and i was hoping to come gather what all of your venders dont want to pack up in terms of the fruits/veggies. the burros need the extra from the produce as a treat as well as bribe for meds w the fly epidemic taking over .. was hoping to raise some awareness about the rescue and have some folks spread the word to farmers and have leftovers donated and ultimately adopt a burro :)
