Buy Local Segment on Iowa’s local News Channel 13

Posted · 34 Comments

I wanted to share a news segment I was highlighted on for my local News Channel 13 station.  I’m excited as they mentioned my blog and my involvement in Iowa’s local food movement.  I’m so proud to be a part of this growing movement and to support such great family farmers!  We truly have, in my biased opinion, some of the best farmers committed to organic, hormone free, and sustainable food!  Matt Russell, organizer for Buy Fresh Buy Local and owner of  Coyote Run Farm is also featured.  If you remember, I spent time on their farm this year helping process chickens!  Coyote Run Farm has provided me and my family with organic produce, free range chicken eggs, grass fed beef and soup bones!  If you’re from Iowa and reading my blog for the first time, please be sure to stop by the local food movement tab at the top of the page for resources on where to buy local food.  Thanks readers for shedding some spotlight on A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa.  Let me know how I did ๐Ÿ˜‰

P.S. Aren’t my chickens cute ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I haven't shopped at Walmart in years. I have heard too many things about what they do to get those low low prices. I also prefer to support my local small businesses. I know you buy some of your food there. You've mentioned Walmart has a good organic section. How do you feel about shopping at Walmart? I really want to know. Perhaps it could be a blog post?

    Congratulations! All of a sudden you make me want to live closer my food suppliers. Do you have CSAs nearby? That's something we can do in big cities to get fresh/local products from local farmers.

    Diana, enhorabuena por tu entrevista. Yo no cultivo productos porque vivo en un piso, pero tengo la suerte de que en mi localidad hay un mercado dรณnde puedo abastecerme de productos naturales directamente del agricultor. Hay una diferencia enorme en cuanto a los sabores de las frutas y las verduras. Tienes mucha suerte de poder producir tus propios alimentos.
    un abrazo
