Distributing the Fruits of Labor

How do small-scale farmers get products from their fields to our plates? Local farmers talk about their involvements in farmers’ markets, food tours, and other areas of distribution.

Jeff Hake of the Land Connection in Champaign, Lorien Carsey of Blue Moon Farm in Urbana, Traci Barkley of Sola Gratia Farm in Urbana, Nicole Bridges of Prosperity Gardens in Champaign and Wes Jarrell of Prairie Fruits Farm and Creamery in Champaign talk about how local farmers and their products reach and impact the community. Diverse interfaces including farmers’ markets, CSAs, food tours, and donations facilitate food distribution.
