  1. Carla Jaquet

    Welcome to our blog! My name is Carla Jaquet and I’m new to the Rock Island County Extension staff. Now that I’ve settled in to my position I thought I would take some time to introduce myself and share my purpose at the Extension. I graduated from Black Hawk College – East campus last May with an AAS in horticulture and am currently a student at Western Illinois University studying Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration with a minor in Environmental Biology. My involvement at BHE was filled with experiential learning leading to my employment with the college as project coordinator for their organic land lab, Black Hawk Organics, a setting where I was given the opportunity to spread my wings and further explore a subject of which I am passionate, the local foods movement.
    The culture of the Midwest has altered significantly over the past thirty years causing small family farms to expand and engage in large scale operations through an attempt to create economic sustainability. With these changes a disconnect between farmer and the general public has occurred causing a disengagement of understanding in relation to food and fiber production as well as a loss of vocational opportunity and cultural mores once a part of Midwestern society. The ill effects of a nutritionally poor diet as well as loss of intrinsic motivation for outdoor activity has fostered a generation of individuals of which obesity is the norm causing related health issues to sky rocket at an alarming rate.
    My purpose with the University of Illinois Extension – Rock Island County, as well as personal goal is to heighten awareness and foster partnerships to further sustainability of small family farms, create a local foods chain to provide our community with healthy locally grown food, and implement educational practices to facilitate informed individuals who engage and assist in a movement essential to well being. I welcome everyone to join me in the next leg of my journey of discovery to a healthier sustainable way of life!

    I found this site through Wendell Berry’s blog. I write my own blog, Rogue’s View, which features a number of essays about my experience as a farmhand after nearly 30 years of working as a reporter, editor and publisher. I miss my old occupation—the digital revolution has changed everything so quickly—but found a new love in the life of the farm.

  3. Julie @SavvyEats

    I am the writer of Savvy Eats, a food blog where I focus on using local and seasonal ingredients and canning fruits and vegetables when they are in season. Excited to check out some of the other blogs on this list!

  4. Jessica @ Delicious Obsessions

    Hi! I am a real food blogger. My blog is called Delicious Obsessions. I love food (that’s the “obsession”) – good, real, wholesome food (that’s the “delicious”) and I am beyond passionate about it! I am a strong advocate for eating local, supporting and growing your local community’s economy, getting to know your farmers, shopping at farmers markets, etc. I am always on the search for local, sustainable products and it is a driving force in my life.

    Thank you for putting this list together and doing the great work that you do! You have a strong voice and I am proud to be a supporter of you and the mission to spread the knowledge!

  5. Lindsey @ Our Share of the Harvest

    Hi, I’m the author and owner of Our Share of the Harvest, a blog that was inspired by our first season of cooking and eating from a CSA share. As our readership and passion for eating locally has grown, we like to think of the blog as a way for us to spread the message about eating locally and as a resource for modern home cooks who want to get back to cooking and preserving foods that come from just a few miles away (or their own gardens!). As the daughter of a long line of farmers, I truly appreciate the work that goes into growing food and the work that goes into supporting those farmers.

  6. Loretta McLean

    We grow and preserve our own produce through most of the year. When we can’t grow enough of our own, we drive to local farms. We are a family of four (with extentions) to feed. We rely on our crops and locals to keep our freezer and pantry full. It’s our way of life.

    To help show our support, I’ve added one of your buttons to my blog.

  7. Samantha

    Hi, I run a home based baking business and run a booth at a local farmers market. I run a blog about baking & cooking and fully support local farms and producers and using local ingredients. I added 2 of your buttons to the blog on my website. Spreading the word whenever I can!

  8. Esther

    Local farms are going to be the only sustaining force in keeping communities fed. I support by buying from my local farmers and do what I can to garden at home as well as preserve food.

  9. Sonia Gasho

    Hello! Found your site from bumper stickers handed out at local cattle growers and Farm Bureau meetings. I am a local rancher and support farms and ranchers in all of America. Local is great but not the only solution. We need to work together to tell our story to everyone. I blog about our ranch and my own thoughts at strongholdbeef.wordpress.com. Would love to help tell your story and mine.

  10. Lynette

    I have posted your button on my blog! Thanks for offering it and hopefully the awareness will be raised. We have a blog where we share our daily task that take place on our farm. We are a small farming family and hope to make a difference in our small community. We support local farmers in any way we can as often as we can!

  11. Dru Ruebush

    Keep up the great work! I was so excited to see the Las Cruces farmer’s market took first place for large markets. I added the button to my blog. Please share THE FARMER’S ITCH with your readers.

    Thanks for all you do for American farms!!!

  12. Linda

    Hi! I’m Linda and my blog, Vittles and Committals, is about my local food experiences and simple family meals made from fresh, whole ingredients – local as much as possible. I’m a supporter of Farmland and love what you are doing and your blog!

  13. bebe @cooking with bebe

    Hi,I just posted one of your buttons to my blog. I just started the blog to show my children that it is possible to make yummy things from locally grown and/ or seasonal foods. We are passionate about food and now we are passionate about finding out where our food comes from and in preserving local farmland. We are frequent visitors to our local farmers markets and we plan to join our community garden next year. Looking forward to perusing all of the other fine blogs on this list.~bebe

  14. Sherry

    Hello! I found your site through another blog that I follow, Life of a Novice. We just started our own blog this year about our trials and tribulations starting an urban farm in our backyard in downtown Kansas City. We’re hoping that will help others who also are wanting to grow their own food and become more self sufficient. I’ve got your button on my blog – would you mind adding me to your blog list?

  15. David Harrison

    We are a small livestock farm, trying our best to get back to the way of life our forefathers started.We grow and butcher our own stock along with a plentiful garden.
    WE also support our local farmers by labor and buying locally when needed.

  16. Bella

    Hello!

    I’m so glad I found this blog. I want to know more about farming, on how to grow your own plant, etc.. Hope you can write more about this in the future! More power!

  17. Erin

    GreenFarmstand.com is a free resource for growers to list their produce and for fresh-food lovers to find it on a local scale. Sustainable growers need to be supported and your site provides incredible resources for this to happen. GreenFarmstand is a proud “wearer” of your button and from all of us here, we thank you.

  18. Kresha @ Nourishing Joy

    I am the editor and chief writer for NourishingJoy.com, a real food blog that is also dedicated to the larger picture of sustainable living, natural homemaking, and joyful parenting.

    My husband farms organic vegetables in the fertile valley where we live and most members of my extended family live and work on family farms in the midwest. Protecting farmland is a joy for us and absolutely essential.

    I am so happy to share your badges on my site and to support your on-going work.

  19. Mooberry Farmwife

    My blog is about our large family’s life on our farm. We do what we can for ourselves; home food production, cooking and baking from scratch, and much frugal living! Thanks for your work on behalf of farmers.
