F.R.E.S.H. Food Hub a community ran food co-op located in Norwood, Colorado. They are maintained solely through volunteer participation with over 15 volunteers, 30 paid members, support by the Telluride Foundation, and service approximately 80 households locally.

They purchase from local farms and producers such Indian Ridge Farm and Bakery, Buckhorn Gardens, Birdhouse Farm,Laid Back Ranch, South River Aquaponics, and many more small scale producers on the western slope offering the best possible prices on wholesome, healthy foods purchasing from over 30 producers in the region (200-mile driving radius).

Indian Ridge Farm provides regional residents with the highest quality, organically grown food available from a local source at affordable prices. They raise livestock — mainly pastured poultry and turkeys, layer hens, pigs and goats in a humane manner. Indian Ridge is a firm believer that livestock have a very important role to play on small family farms. And because the chickens, turkeys and layer hens are constantly rotated to fresh pasture, you can be assured you’re enjoying the health benefits of consuming grass-fed meats and byproducts such as eggs.
