A new website at at its essence is a local food guide that is much more compelling than a list of names and numbers. The online directory features ranchers and farmers to connect them, their stories and their products to local consumers. 

The project by Guidestone Colorado and Envision Chaffee County is supported by grant funding from the Chaffee County Community Foundation (CCCF) and a Chaffee Common Ground mini-grant. helps consumers buy locally and enjoy knowing who and where their food comes from. The website is an easy information access point to find ranchers and farmers selling their products, brick-and-mortar markets and restaurants, and food banks that provide resources to community members.

Listings that are free for agricultural producers and other organizations include contact information and web-links so consumers can directly do business with them. An interactive map and search functions connect website users to the producers, organizations and food banks.
