A product of the COVID-19 pandemic 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Heritage Local Co. emerged as a beacon of hope for the rural community of McCook. Founder Paula Sanders and her family established Heritage Local in response to the food concern that arose during the pandemic. She saw the need for access to fresh, locally grown food in a convenient way. So, a small egg-selling business evolved into a service that has aided communities across Nebraska. 

Every producer that is local is a family. 

Company founder, Paula Sanders, emphasizes that the producers they work with are just families who are passionate about what they’re doing. That’s how they ensure quality products. Buying directly from the producers also keeps the money in the community in comparison to when you buy from a “big-box store.This commitment to supporting local families not only strengthens the bonds within the community but also contributes to the sustainability of the region's agricultural heritage.
