What do you find most challenging, what would you like to learn more about in regards to eating local?

Connecting with our customers is tough. Once we find each other the relationship grows exponetionally, but the initial connections are tough to establish sometimes.

What is your area of work/interest that you would you like to share with other locavores?

We both work in agriculture. Our experience is vast and covers many parts of North America. We are happy to share our experiences both good and bad.

Name three things you would like to do relating to eating locally grown food and community building.

1 - more mainstream awareness (media etc) 2 - more tours of farms like ours, we have lots to share

I have the following food items for sale or trade:

Natural, Pastured Berkshire Pork Free Range brown eggs Lamb & Beef (seasonally) Organic Fair Trade Coffee Local Honey Products Local jams, jellies & preserves

Would you be interested in hosting an event?
