We are Nebraska's trusted guide to local food.
For 15 years, we have been the go-to resource for Nebraskans wanting to connect with farmers, farm-to-table restaurants, and food artisans. We expand the customer base for our members through our Nebraska Food Guide, website, social media marketing campaigns, and events. We promote our members and Nebraska-grown as a whole, but we also educate. By raising awareness of the importance of locally-grown foods, we support each other as we work together puting wholesome foods on Nebraskan tables.
