Help a Farmer, Go Local

Share this post

This is "Going Local" week in Indiana... an initiative to celebrate local foods and the farmers that provide them.  The Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) is encouraging Hoosier families to include at least one Indiana-grown or produced food product at each meal. The ISDA says there are now more than one-hundred communities in Indiana that host farmers markets, including several in northwest Indiana. It's estimated that if more individuals shifted $4.50 of their weekly food budget to buy food directly from local farms each week, farms would earn $1.5 billion of new income a year.
You can find Indiana food and producers, listings of local food events, farm tours and recipes at the GOING LOCAL website: www.goinglocal-info.com .
For information on a farmers market near you, visit the ISDA web site: www.in.gov/isda/index.htm
