To The Daily Sun,
Spring crops are in the ground, and local produce will soon be appearing at roadside stands and farmers' markets, and in Community Supported Agriculture baskets. How will you find all this great local bounty? Simple, the Lakes Region Local Food Guide, your one-stop search location for all the bounty the Lakes Region has to offer.
Veggies, fruit, cheese, meat, eggs, wine and more are offered by the farms and businesses listed in the guide. Need veggie or herb plants for your backyard garden? Check the guide to find garden centers selling exactly what you need.
There's just one thing ... we still need a bit more funding in order to print as many guides as we did last year. With your contribution, you can help us spread the guides over the entire Lakes Region. So far, we have received generous contributions from Meredith Village Savings Bank, Moulton Farm, Red Fox Farm, Lindon Garlic Farm, Minglewood Farm, Winnipesaukee Woods Farm, Sunflower Natural Foods, Top of the Hill Farm, Song Away Farm, Belknap County Conservation District, Jeremy Hogan, MD, Lakes Region General Hospital, Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, Alice's Herbals, Curtis and Marcia Rodman, and UNH Cooperative Extension.
Please make a donation towards the printing costs — your donation by May 10 earns you "bragging rights" with a listing in the guide. Donations of $100 and up entitle donors to include website, logos and text, depending on the amount donated.
Checks payable to UNH can be sent to Kelly McAdam, UNH Cooperative Extension, 635 Main St., 3rd Floor, Laconia, NH 03246. No contribution is too small to be recognized, so show your support for this sector of the local business community, and help our Lakes Region food producers thrive.
