Chef Cooperatives' To Benefit
Green Bexar Farms
WHO: San Antonio’s Chef Cooperatives, a nonprofit comprised of well-known San Antonio chefs, has been instrumental in raising funds through their pop-up events to actively support the health and prosperity of South Central Texas farmers, ranchers and vintners, as well as the local communities. The Chefs have also been first responders, feeding these same communities during times of disaster.
WHAT: Chef Cooperatives is thrilled to announce their next farm pop-up to be held at and to benefit local beyond organic farm, Green Bexar Farm, located in the Eastern part of Bexar County.

Green Bexar Farm, owned by husband and wife team, Cody and Natalie Scott, sits on a 10-acre pecan orchard, where besides pecans, they produce salad greens, micro greens, root vegetables and beautiful greenhouse tomatoes, which they sell at the Pearl Farmers Market and to local restaurants.
Funds raised through this event will go towards building a store, learning center and wash and pack station, which will allow the farm to sell directly to the local community in Eastern Bexar County, which is situated in a food desert.
"This event will be the first time we've opened up our farm to the local community, and we're excited to introduce ourselves and get to collaborate with the Chef Cooperatives to serve some really good food and display what we do here," said Cody Scott.
"What's interesting for us is we've helped so many farms in the past five years that it's becoming a challenge to find local farms to help. That's the goal, though, to support thriving independent farms in our local community, which connects farmers to chefs and the people of San Antonio in a much more organic and authentic way. It's rewarding seeing our efforts come to fruition," added Stephen Paprocki, President of Chef Cooperatives.
