About Buy Fresh Buy Local

Welcome to the Buy Fresh Buy Local campaign dedicated to connecting the Greater Des Moines community to local, farm-fresh food. The campaign supports a healthier population and promotes greater economic growth. Take the pledge to Buy Fresh Buy Local! Also, check out the specifics of last year’s Harvest Party.

Our  2014 Food Guide is now available as a PDF! The file is searchable, and all the websites and email links are active. Take a second to look over what local food is available in Greater Des Moines!

See a fun video from the 2012 pilot year for Plant a Mile, and to help bring fresh, locally grown produce to low income families in Greater Des Moines this year, help us volunteer on farms this summer and fall. Email us at bfbl@drake.edu if you would like to get involved. Thanks to everyone who came out to support the 2nd Annual Plant a Mile Fundraising Dinner at HoQ on June 15, it was a great success!

The Buy Fresh Buy Local campaign is a project of the Drake University Agricultural Law Center. Support comes from over 100 farm and business members. A special thanks to our sponsoring members for their additional support:
