Local Harvest

Hodgepodge reader Marilyn sends along this website: for us to check out.
LocalHarvest is nationwide directory of small farms, farmers markets, and other local food sources. Their search engine will help you find products from family farms, local sources of sustainably grown food, and enable you to establish direct contact with small farms in your local area. The online store helps small farms develop markets for some of their products beyond their local area.
More and more people are realizing the importance of preserving a food industry based on family-owned, small scale businesses.
"The Buy Local movement is quickly taking us beyond the promise of environmental responsibility that the organic movement delivered, and awakening the US to the importance of community, variety, humane treatment of farm animals, and social and environmental responsibility in regards to our food economy."

(Thanks Marilyn for sending it along!)
