Experience the power of local food.


We envision a thriving community where people are nourished by fresh locally and regionally grown food every day.



Local produce is fresher, tastier and more nutritious because it is usually sold within 24 hours of being harvested.



If each Blaine County resident spends just $5 each week on locally grown food, our farmers will earn $5.7 million annually — a huge economic boost.



Food purchased from community-based farmers within our regional foodshed reduces your diet's environmental impact.

The Wood River Valley offers a year-round supply of locally and regionally grown food, including grass-fed meat, dairy, dried beans, eggs, honey, fresh fruits, and vegetables.

Check our Food Guide for a list of community farms, markets, restaurants, and businesses that support good food.

Each dollar spent on local food recirculates within our community an average of seven times - a win for our local economy!
