I'm a cocoa farmer/chocolate maker, launching a chocolate business soon. I purchase some cocoa from the local farmers too, but would like to increase this number in the future but would like to put a model in place to build my business but also give the farmers a level of ownership instead of building a typical co-operative.

Hi - I've worked with a chocolatier who provided a stake in the outcome to origin farmers and can share a simple method with you for how this works best (it does not involve an ESOP or giving them shares of your company). I'm happy to jump on a call and walk you through and share some resources that can also help!
