Meet Women Producers

Canaan supports women's cooperatives, which give economic and social benefits to women, as well as our organic farmers.  Canaan has embarked on a three year project to interview and photograph members of all the over 50 PFTA cooperatives, both farmer and women's cooperatives, that we partner with.  Below are just a few of those profiles. We hope you enjoy meeting some of our women cooperative members. Above is Um Samid from 'Anza Women's Cooperative..
