I find the One Local Summer challenge going on over at Pocket Farm so inspiring, but I’ve never participated. While our meat and veggies obviously come from our own farm, I don’t know where to get locally grown/manufactured staples such as flour or cheese.
So how do you find out if such things exist? I’m looking for things within about a 100-mile radius of here. This would include the cities of Mankato, Red Wing, Rochester and Winona, MN; LaCrosse, and Prairie du Chien, WI; and Waterloo, Marshalltown, Ames, Fort Dodge, Estherville, and Mason City, IA.
