In order to get more information about what's out there in the 100 mile radius, I decided to spend today contacting local businesses and farms, requesting information about what they do and how they do it. I'm hoping to get the opportunity to meet some of these people in person. I'd like to learn just how organic farmers keep pests off their plants. My basil looks more like swiss cheese than the fragrant, leafy herb it's supposed to look like. I'd like to try my hand at beekeeping and see honey that's still in its comb. And I've always wanted to learn more about wild mushrooms.
Here's a short list of the one's I'm most excited about visiting:
Arva Flour Mill
Grimo Nut Nursery
Wylie Mycological Ltd.
Greenfield's Organic Farm
In the meantime, I'm waiting for responses so we can begin the 100 Mile journey....
See you soon.
