Our team is working hard on the 5th-anniversary edition of the Wood River Valley Locally Grown Guide! Since the spring of 2020, the Guide has been providing consumers with an easy way to identify, locate, and enjoy locally grown food. A Locally Grown Guide listing shares information about a farm, ranch, restaurant, food and beverage artisan, or retail store. Individuals and wholesale buyers use this information to replace imported food with products grown in our food shed.
For the 5th anniversary edition, we are revisiting all 140+ Locally Grown Guide listings to ensure the information is accurate and complete. The Guide is a dynamic resource. We add listings, update current listings, and create new content every year! Like local food, each edition of the Guide is fresh!
Benefits of a Locally Grown Guide Listing
A Locally Grown Guide listing has many benefits. First off, it’s 100% free. All a business needs to do to be listed in the Guide is produce or sell regionally grown food in the Wood River Valley. It is intentionally easy to be listed in the Guide because every business sourcing locally should be celebrated and recognized. The more people who find a business through the LGG, the more likely the company will continue seeking local sources.
Second, a wide variety of people, both residents and visitors, are searching for local food. Over 13,000 individuals interacted with the Locally Grown Guide in 2023. The Locally Grown Guide connects the folks to your business.
Being listed in the Guide also demonstrates your support for local food in our community. We are building a movement and are proud to have over 140 farms, ranches, restaurants, food businesses, and organizations join us! A thriving regional food system requires broad support and a diversity of ideas. The Locally Grown Guide demonstrates how far our community has come.
