Buy Fresh, Buy Local
Healthy Harvest of North Iowa manages the North Central Iowa Buy Fresh, Buy Local Chapter. BFBL is a national marketing campaign designed by FoodRoutes. Information about all Iowa BFBL Chapters is available at www.iowabfbl.org.
The Healthy Harvest of North Iowa website is set up for producers to join our BFBL campaign at any time of the year. We print a hard copy guide annually. The deadline for this hard copy is April of each year.
Rural Bounty, the leading North American agritourism Web site directory, is offering free basic memberships. The directory allows each farm operator to provide a brief description about their farm as well as to complete an online survey to list everything that they offer at their business, from products to experiences. Consumers can search the site by state, products, experiences, lodging and more.
Part of the Farmers Market Coalition’s ongoing mission is to serve producers, market managers, and other farmers market organization staff. They recently launched a webinar series on insurance, designed to help farmers markets and producers better understand and manage the liability risks that could compromise everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve.
