Last April I initiated a blog about Local Food Producers in our area as part of my i-Three Corps project. The purpose of this project was to bring awareness to local food and producers, particularly beginning farmers. The goal is to help increase sales for these farmers and ultimately increase their profitability. I do know other Extension Educators in other states have been writing blogs about local food producers and it has been very successful.
Below are some survey questions regarding this blog. I would welcome and appreciate comments about the blog. My plan is to continue on with this blog. I have just barely scratched the surface of beginning local food producers in our area, let alone the established producers.
Do you think a blog like this, highlighting local food producers is beneficial for the local food scene?
Is it beneficial for the local food producers?
Will it increase awareness of local food?
Did anyone tell you they saw this blog?
Do you think I should continue with this blog telling others about local food producers and other programs and activities related to the local food system?
Thank you for your comments!
