Here's Our Local Producers Directory

Thank you to our farmers! We value our local producers, who sell their many products in our stores. This list is always evolving, and we invite inquiries.

The photo here is of a field of certified organic flax grown by Anna Welch and others at Fields of Agape.

We recognize local growers as part of our Principle Six initiative, in which we shine a light on products meeting at least two of these three criteria: local, small farmer or artisan producer, and co-op or non-profit.

Many of these growers are members of the Local Growers Guild, a multi-level cooperative of farmers, retailers, restaurants, and community supporters who support our local food economy. Learn more at the bottom of the list!

These producers meet the criteria for our Principle Six initiative.

To be recognized as P6, products must meet at least two of these three criteria:

• Local

• Small farmer or Artisan producer, Human scale

• Co-op or Non-profit

 

Many of these growers are members of the Local Growers Guild, where you can find more information about local foods in south central Indiana.

The Local Growers' Guild is a cooperative of farmers, retailers, and community members dedicated to strengthening the local food economy in southern Indiana through education, direct support, and market connections.

Bloomingfoods used funds received from equity in the Blooming Prairie Cooperative Warehouse to give local growers seed money to start the Guild in 2006.
