Welcome to Farm-to-Table!
We invite you to join us in building a sustainable local food system among the prairies and badlands of Eastern Montana and Western North Dakota.
Current Farm-to-Table projects include compiling a Local Buyer's Guide to help you find local food in our region (or if you are a grower or producer, to help customers find you), forming the Farm-to-Table Co-op, an ag marketing co-op that will market member's produce and products to local stores, restaurants, and food services, etc, and Western Trails Food, a value added food business featuring hulless barley in pancake, bread and soup mixes. It now features locally grown beans plus a great bean sauce and grill sauce.
We have also been assisting Dawson Community College in their planning process for a Culinary Arts program. Culinary Classes are now underway, taught by chef Garth Clingingsmith. Culinary classes will train chefs to work with local growers and producers as well as the skills of food preparation, safety and management. Plans are developing for a Food Development Center for a shared use Commercial Kitchen that will increase opportunities for value-added food production in our region.
The Community Garden needs a new home.
We are looking for a permanent garden spot; let us know if you find the perfect spot. In the meantime, it is amazing what you can grow in pots. Partner with your neighbor, friends or a senior citizen. Gardening together, it is amazing what you will learn and enjoy. Or let someone else do the gardening and you support the Farmers Market. Saturdays Farmers Market has moved to the EPEC Parking lot from 9-noon. More
