MASON CITY, IA – Finding out who the local farmers are at your farmers market just got a little easier.
Healthy Harvest of North Iowa has made their website a little more high-tech.
Northiowafood.org now features a guide, making it easier to find local producers, markets, and food businesses.
Karl Milliron, an area farmer in the North Iowa Farmers Market, says he hopes it makes people more comfortable to know where they are buying their food from.
“And we’re trying to re-educate people about the value of eating locally produced foods that are picked vine ripe, that do have all the flavors, that do have all the nutrition,” said Milliron.
A sweepstakes contest has also been added to their Facebook site, along with an additional list of events coming up.
