Fresh herbs are very easy to grow yourself! Right now I’m busy drying herbs for use over the winter. Why buy them when they’re so easy to grow and dry yourself?

Didn’t grow your own herbs this year? Then start planning for next year right now. Think about  location, make a list of herbs you’d like to grow, and even build the raised bed if you plan to use one. Having it ready to go in the spring will help you get the plants in the ground sooner.

Welcome to Black Hills Local Foods Blog!

Calling all locavores! My purpose in creating this blog is so that those of us who are interested in local food systems can find each other! Though I’ve named it “Black Hills” Local Foods, it’s really for anyone in this region, so if you’re from Kadoka, Bison, Winner, or anywhere in between, we want to hear from you too!

Eastern South Dakota seems to have a more visible local-foods presence, but I know we have locavores out west as well. Are you a producer who sells direct to the consumer … a consumer who wants to buy more local foods … interested in growing more of your own food … aiming for a more self-sufficient lifestyle? Then let’s talk.
