Get it Local! Registration opens for Local Food Guide

Do you grow food? Do you own a local restaurant or food truck? Do you make artisan foods? Do you have chickens with eggs for sale? Are you a beekeeper? Do you sell plants? Do you raise or process freezer beef/pork? Are you involved in agri-tourism or have a u-pick farm? Does your organization provide food relief? Are you interested in providing fresh local food to our county schools? Would you like to support your local food system? 

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then #GetitLocal in this year’s NWTN Local Food Network’s Local Food Guide. The guide is a FREE directory of locally produced foods and family farms in Northwest Tennessee. Whether you are a backyard gardener, small-scale or large scale farmer – all are invited to list their products and services by registering for a FREE listing. 

Residents throughout the region use the guide to find family farms, farmers markets, wineries/distilleries, restaurants, food artisans and bakers, farm stores and stands, pumpkin patches, u-pick farms, CSAs, animal products, beekeepers, processors, food trucks, locally owned restaurants, locally owned plant vendors, and food relief organizations. 

“The LFN is working with farmers listed in the guide to establish and expand our farm to school programs which will increase locally grown food in schools for our children to enjoy a fresh healthy meal straight from the source,” stated Samantha Goyret, Executive Director of the Northwest Tennessee Local Food Network. “Additionally, we are seeking to list more restaurants and hunger-relief organizations in this year’s Local Food Guide Magazine.” 

Any business or organization mentioned in the categories above are invited to fill out the FREE registration form for the upcoming Northwest Tennessee Local Food Guide 2022 by Friday, February 25, 2022 online at: nwtnlfn.org/food-resources (please note: personal addresses will not show on the listing, but it is needed to mark your business on the regional map).
