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.

If you are looking to become a member of a CSA in 2014, be sure to visit our list of shares for the upcoming season, and check out the video from our CSA fair!

Our 2013 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. And thanks to all who attended our fundraising dinner at HoQ Restaurant on June 16. 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:
