The mission of the Grant County Local Food Guide is simple: to make fresh, healthy food from local producers more available and affordable to Grant County residents, while making resources available for producers.
Originally created in partnership with an AmeriCorps/RARE (Resource Assistance for Rural Environments) participant, the Grant County Economic Development Department and with assistance from the Grant County Oregon State University Extension Service, the Guide serves to enhance the entire local food system.
The Grant County Local Food Guide welcomes producers to participate from Grant, Baker, Union, Morrow, Umatilla, Wheeler, Crook, Harney, and Malheur Counties.
We encourage you to contact us for more information about selling your own produce through our service or buying fresh foods from a local grower. The Grant County Local Food Guide is a completely free public service and we welcome your participation.
Connecting Local People and Local Food
Making fresh, healthy food more available and affordable. Since locally produced food does not have to travel great distances to get to your plate, the cost of transportation is saved in the product price. It also spends less time in storage between when it is harvested and when it reaches your table.
