We LIKE TO TALK.
Here at Hoosier Locavore, we're all about continuing the conversation surrounding local food, diversified farming, and small businesses. We're passionate about supporting the commercial efforts of our friends, neighbors, and, yes, ourselves.
To that end, we also have a small farm (duggerfamilyfarm.com), where we are planning to host a "Porch Series" of conversations in 2017. This series will cover topics like animal husbandry, food preservation, land restoration and more. Visit this page to see what we have planned, and be sure to RSVP below. We'll save a seat for you!
