I have some great local news. It should now be easier to find locally produced food in Eau Claire and Wisconsin. There is a new website http://www.grocersbuylocal.com/
that has been set up to help grocery stores in Wisconsin and local producers find each other. I know locally Hahn’s, Festival, Mega Foods and Ron’s Castle Foods are participating with this new program to buy locally grown and raised food. This site was started by the Wisconsin Grocers Association. You can go to the site and look at your county to see who is participating in this program. Buying locally is a fantastic way to reduce use of fossil fuels due to shipping and support local economies. Buying local also means your food is fresher and has more nutrients. So, get busy and buy local.
