Local food sources

As this incredible wave of connecting to one's food continues to build, it is great to see the entrepreneurial spirit work itself out. I met Ben Ellenbaas this morning. Farmer Ben's is working on a being a source for local meat. I walked with him around his farm as he showed me the pig pens, the cows, and the chickens out in the field. Nice looking animals. Can't wait to taste the bacon I bought. Check them out.

As food security issues become more and more relevant, we need pioneers like the Ellenbaas' to to help figure out how we're going to feed ourselves in the future. That is one of our priorities here at Five Loaves Farm as well.
