BriarPatch Co-op



As a community-owned cooperative, part of BriarPatch Co-op’s mission is to support our community while building our local economy.

Join us in connecting with local and regional farms, ranches, and businesses by looking for the local signs and thinking local first as you shop.

Our Green Building


BriarPatch Co-op is Nevada County’s first commercial building certified by the US Green Building Council’s LEED®: Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. The building industry is a major consumer and polluter of the environment, and buildings use one third of our total energy and two thirds of our electricity. The purpose of the LEED® program is to promote sustainable, “green” building design, and ecological approaches to site planning and land development.
