To the Editor:
When the Eastern Oregon Food and Farm Directory came out last year so many people told me that Lucky Farm Chicken should have been listed. This year I didnt let the opportunity pass. I paid my membership and submitted my listing early. The guide is a print and online directory to local eating and good living and this year there will even be an interactive PDF for iPad! It helps connect farmers, ranchers and gardeners to the local products and services they need and it helps connect consumers to local food producers like me.
Oregon Rural Action publishes the guide each year in June to promote local food production and consumption. This year, with funding support from the Oregon Department of Ag Specialty Crop Grant program, the guide is expanding. Now folks from across Eastern Oregon (not just NE Oregon) will be included.
Lets make this directory the go-to guide for fresh local food in Eastern Oregon. Without your listing it wont be as good. ORA wants to list all farmers, ranchers, food processors, bakers, canners, restaurants, wineries, schools, hospitals, community gardens, farmers markets, grocery stores, farm stands, caterers and others who grow, make, sell or serve locally produced food and farm products.
