Eating Local/Organic: Buy in Bulk

by Catherine Haug, Sept 5, 2011

I happened upon an interesting blog while researching the lacto-fermentation of fruits. The author, Jess Lundie, lives in Olympia WA (after living a much faster-paced life in Washington DC), and has discovered that when living on a shoestring budget, the way to afford high-quality local and/or Organic foods is to buy in bulk.

Check out her post: Buying in Bulk;

And her blog:

We are lucky to have a lot of local sources of fresh produce in the Flathead, including our own famous Flathead Cherries. Did you know that most of these orchards also grow other fruits including apples, peaches, plums, raspberries, grapes and blueberries? And some also sell veggies from their own gardens.

This year we lost our local CSA (Swallow Crest Farms), as Julian decided to pursue a different business model for his farm. However, rumor has it that he will be returning to the CSA model in 2012. If/when this is confirmed, I’ll write a post about it.

Meanwhile, to find other sources of locally grown/raised foods, check out the Farmhands website & map.
