In 2008, when some North Country residents were trying to start a food co-op in Littleton, one of the goals was to support the region’s economy by buying as much locally as possible.
Six years later, the co-op is buying about $1.7 million a year in the area, says the Co-op’s general manager, Ed King.
“The local food and producer business is probably 25 percent of our business. That is a pretty good chunk of money going back into the local economy," he said.
That money goes to producers like Tim Wennrich.
