Honoring the Dignity of Labor

Our Harvest is a worker-owned cooperative that creates family-sustaining jobs in the agricultural sector. We are committed to open employment and the empowerment that comes from working in a democratically-run workplace.

Developed on the Mondragon Cooperative model out of Spain, Our Harvest is one of five cooperatives founded by the Cincinnati Union Coop Initiative (CUCI).
