As reported in the 4 October 2007 Madison Daily Leader, Dakota Rural Action’s new local foods directory will be released this evening at their 20th anniversary celebration and annual meeting:
The event will be held at the Spring Lake Hunting Lodge & Resort near Oldham and is open to the public.
The evening will begin with a “South Dakota foods” buffet at 6:00 p.m., featuring locally grown bison and pheasant. Featured speaker Dr. Mary Hendrickson of the University of Missouri-Columbia will highlight the benefits of expanding local food systems for consumers, farmers and rural communities.
The event will celebrate the completion of the 72-page directory, which includes over 75 entries of local food producers and farmers markets statewide. The directory features original artwork, recipes and tips on using and storing locally-grown food. It contains resources on locally-grown beef, bison, pork, lamb, poultry, elk, vegetables, fruits, breads, grains, honey, eggs, milk, wine, herbs, flowers, processed foods and more.
