Greetings from Healthy Harvest of North Iowa
We believe that locally grown food is a key ingredient to healthy people, productive communities! Over the past seven years, we’ve worked to bring partners together to develop a local food scene that is vibrant and growing in North Iowa. Explore our impact and programs below, and consider joining us in this work.
We provide education, marketing, and networking support for producers to improve their business practices and diversify local food offerings.
Customers & Buyers
We encourage customers to buy local by providing ideas on how to find and use local foods; We work with buyers to increase local food product offerings in their restaurants and stores.
We work with communities to grow their local food network through farmers’ market technical support, farm to fork events, and partnership development.
We build a network of partners to develop a complete regional local food system through efforts like the North Iowa Local Food Coalition.
