Nance Klehm with Catatumbo Cooperative Farm
Catatumbo Cooperative Farm is a worker owned collective run by three immigrant queer, nonbinary women, located in South Chicago. CCF uses a community supported agriculture model to provide culturally relevant food for community members in Little Village, Englewood, and South Chicago neighborhoods. CCF officially begun operations in the fall of 2018 but was conceived in 2017 when the three worker owners attended Soul Fire farmers immersion program. It can be argued that the seeds for Catatumbo Cooperative Farm were planted long before that, through their families’ histories and relationship to agriculture, migration, and community-building.
