Coopeagri, Costa Rica’s largest farmer cooperative, was founded in 1962 to help increase production and market access for small- and medium-sized farmers in San Isidro de General. Today, Coopeagri boasts more than 10,000 members.
Today, Coopeagri continues to focus on the wellbeing of members and their farming communities. They spearhead projects that range from building medical offices where members can access medical care to growing an already extensive agronomy support and outreach program.
The cooperative produces organic fertilizer that members can access to help them maintain ecologically healthy farms. They also run a local café that showcases the coffees their members produce.
