Hometown Food Guide Map & PDF Print out

Looking for local food in the Columbus area? You've come to the right place.

Once the Co-op doors open, you'll be able to find local food featured in our full service grocery store. Until then, we're working hard to connect our 1000+ members with nearby farms and farmers. We hope this Guide will be a useful community resource that promotes farms and helps more people eat more local food.

 Print out the guide by downloading here. It lists all of the farms from the map and a basic description of what food they produce and how to find it. Put this on your refrigerator or in the car so you always know where to find local food.

Local Food: Information for Your Community

Local Food is defined in many ways, but most importantly, it means food from farmers in your county, state, or region — whether chickens_sue.jpg you buy it at a farmers market, restaurant, or grocer.

You can buy most of the food you need from Indiana farmers, including flour, popping corn, beans, veggies, fruit, syrup, honey, jam, meat, sausage, chicken, eggs, and fish, to name a few.

The advantage of buying local is that you support a local food economy that sustains our agricultural heritage and family farms, addresses food security and land use concerns, and retains food dollars in our state economy.
