Dayton Area Locovores

My new Yahoo Group:

Locavores try to eat as much as possible from local farmers and producers. If you've found a great source for locally-grown and locally produced foods, post it here! If you're looking for a local source, here's the place to ask. We share information about local foods – sources, methods of food preservation, community supported agriculture (CSA), co-ops, u-picks, farmers' markets, herdshares, sustainable agriculture, winter markets, family farms, farmstands, roadside markets, local vineyards and wineries, foraging, and more. We're for anyone who wants to get more local foods into local diets. Chefs, growers, producers, consumers, food writers, educators and students are all welcome. Farmers and producers, please join us. Our members want to hear about your local food products and how to get them, winter or summer.

The word locavore is being used incorrectly a lot right now, and I am relieved to see this site is about the real thing. Just eating at local independant restaurants isn't a locavore unless the restaurants are using local food too. I'm going to read more of your site!

We love eating at the locally owned
restaurants (the ones that always buy from local farms) and buying what we can at the local farmers markets.
I enjoy this so much...
