Northeast Indiana’s Food Network – dig your food!
If you’re a local grower please join us on Tuesday, March 25th at Liquid Farms from 8am til 10am to get to know your fellow growers and exchange ideas.
This is a free event celebrating local food and farmers in our community.
A number of locally-based organizations involved in agriculture are expected to participate, and table space for sharing your information is available upon request.
A light breakfast will be available for $6. Door prizes!
Bees and Carrots is a local food network bringing people together in support of small farms and good food right here in our community. Fort Wayne and the surrounding area are rich with delicious, local food grown by our friends and neighbors. We’ve got thriving markets and hardworking farmers, bakers and chefs who can feed your cravings for produce, dairy, meat, honey, syrup and grains.
Whether you’ve come to Bees and Carrots in search of great greens, a place to plant, a way to help or to sell your fantastic produce, you are turning opportunity into action when you keep it local!
Together we improve our food system when we eat and grow healthy, fresh, affordable produce and there are lots of ways to participate in our local food network.
Know a local restaurant using local food? Let us know! Looking for fresh seasonal produce? Check out the weekly series Local Food Focus to find everything from berries to veggies. Want to volunteer at a garden, or join a CSA? Find it here!
The Bees and Carrots network promotes locally grown food by providing information for and about local growers to the community.
We advocate for a regional food system approach, such as a food hub or farmers cooperative, that supports fair wages, insurance and safe working conditions for our local farmers.
You can help by educating yourself on
→ the economic advantages of supporting local growers;
→ social and physical benefits of eating locally grown food;
→ What matters to you in the foods you buy.
