Take Part in the Farm-to-Table Trend with Local Harvest
Long before the farm-to-table trend was fashionable, my mother sought out and cooked with the bountiful produce of the farmlands that surrounded our home in Portland, Oregon. Her love of fresh food grown by local farmers has stayed with me, so I was delighted to discover Local Harvest - an organic and local food website.
Local Harvest maintains the very best public directory of small farms, farmers' markets, and other local food sources nationwide. They also encourage consumers to establish direct contact with small farms in their local area - their search engine and online store does just that. By simply typing in your location and the produce you're looking for, Local Harvest will populate a list of farmers in your area selling that product - you can even buy it online! You can also find grass-fed meats, fresh flowers, organic health care products, Christmas wreaths, desserts, gifts, pet items, and other treats!
Visit LocalHarvest.org for more information.
