L'ORIGNAL -- A local food map featuring local farms, farmer's markets, breweries, wineries and local food businesses in Prescott-Russell and Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry was launched last month by The Eastern Ontario Agri-Food Network (EOAN).
According to Network Coordinator Dana Kittle, "We created the map primarily to connect people with local food and local farmers, to make residents aware of the numerous local food options available to them, and to grow the local market potential for local food businesses.
The map, featuring a geographic map on one side and listings on the reverse side, is available free of charge to residents in a paper copy format while supplies last, and will also be available online shortly.
The map was made possible by the generous sponsorship of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the United Counties of SD&G and PR, Homestead Organics, and the Union des cultivateurs franco-ontariens.
Copies of the map can be picked up at a wide variety of outlets in the region, including libraries, farms, businesses, and township offices. To view a listing of locations where maps can be picked up in your area, visit the Agri-Food Network's website at www.agro-on.ca.
