Acme Valley Foods makes delicious local treats with an added dash of generous community support—"It's Damn Good"!
We love our local vendors. Working with local businesses keeps more money circulating in our local economy, provides local jobs, and supports the creativity, talent, and entrepreneurial spirit of our local community.
And when a local vendor strongly aligns with our commitment to give back to our community, then that relationship is all the sweeter.
Such is the case with Acme Valley Foods.
Not only do they have a line of delicious, high-quality local products—Acme Super Premium Ice Cream, Acme Farms specialty cheeses, and Chuckanut Crunch Granola—when you purchase products from Acme Valley Foods you are also investing in our local community.
Acme Valley Foods and its affiliates support a number of community and charitable activities.
Their major areas of commitment include end-of-life care, film and performance arts, drug policy reform and smart justice efforts in general, restoration of wolf populations in the Northwest, and increased recognition of the reality and impacts of climate change, as well as practical resilience strategies. Their community partners include Whatcom Land Trust, Conservation Northwest, Law Advocates, Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center, Pickford Film Center, Whatcom Hospice, Western Washington University, and Whatcom Alliance for Health Advancement.
Acme also partnered with us to help raise money for the Co-op Farm Fund at our annual Community Party in August. They donated their delicious ice cream sandwiches (people raved about them and some came back for seconds) and we raised almost $400 to kick-start the “Let it grow” campaign to raise funds for the Farm Fund.
As their ice cream label proudly declares, “It’s Damn Good”!
We agree. Acme Valley Foods' delicious local treats with an added dash of generous community support—“It’s Damn Good”!
