The Cooperative Experience
How can you make a difference in today’s world? Think differently, Zenhens does. Our goal is to deliver a consistent source of local, fresh, organically raised chicken eggs and organic produce to metropolitan Tucson. Critical to Zenhens is the support and development of sustainable agricultural practices in an urban setting. We are all looking for more natural, healthy foods—animals that are well treated and food grown without synthetic and harmful pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Urban farming opens the door to a more sustainable community.
