Growing Quality Local Produce Responsibly
We’re really fortunate to work with some super great folks here in Eastern Iowa. And while we like to think of all of our customers as champions of local food, it’s tough for all of them to get credit for supporting our local farming community. Last month the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture posted profiles of nine local food champions in coordination with the Regional Food Systems Working Group, including two of our wholesale customers that have regularly purchased apples and vegetables from us over the past couple of years now. All of the profiles can be reviewed here, but we’re especially happy to note the profiles of Pam Oldham & Andy Deutmeyer at Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids and Miles Breed & Steve Neese at Clarke University in Dubuque.
We are so glad to be working with these folks, as well as our other dedicated customers! To all of the local food champions out there seeking high-quality, locally-grown produce; we thoroughly appreciate your interest in providing an outlet for our efforts. Here’s to striving even further in 2015 to build a strong community of local food champions throughout Iowa and beyond!
