We're excited to announce LFA's newest project: The Wood River Valley's first Locally Grown Guide!


ABOUT THE GUIDE

The Wood River Valley Locally Grown Guide invites you to experience the farms, food businesses and organizations that create the distinctive flavor of our community. Published annually, our free guide connects residents and visitors to high-quality seasonal food produced in our regional foodshed.

Why is this so important? With the majority of our food being imported, and the majority of our farmland used to grow food for export, most of our food dollars are lost to the industrial agriculture system. We can change this to create a thriving community with greater farmer income and healthier air, water, soil and people as we benefit from the availability of fresh, nutrient-dense foods.

By supporting local farmers and food businesses, we can each do our part to guarantee an ample supply of nourishing food for our community; ensure vibrant and prosperous farmers markets; preserve farmland; and scale up regenerative agriculture to maximize food quality and combat the global climate crisis.

Your one-stop resource for eating local, the Wood River Valley Locally Grown Guide includes information on farms and ranches, farmers markets and CSAs, retail outlets, restaurants serving locally grown foods, and more. The colorful printed booklet will be available for free on local magazine stands, in visitors' centers, the Wood River Farmers Market, and other high-traffic locations starting May 20, 2020.

A digital edition of the guide is available at Localfoodalliance.org/food-guide.
