Buy Fresh, Buy Local



The Northern Iowa Food & Farm Partnership is getting ready to create the 2017 Buy Fresh, Buy Local (BFBL) Directory. The directory is part of a cooperative marketing effort and an educational tool that provides consumers with a way to find local food and build connections with farmers. We hope you will join the campaign!

Registration is now open. Forms are due by January 16 for inclusion in the 2017 directory.
