The free guide has more than 130 descriptive listings of family farms, local food restaurants, supporting businesses and organizations throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties.
In accordance with its mission, WSU Extension aims to increase knowledge of local agricultural endeavors in benefit to producers, businesses and the community at large.
The guide provides information about produce seasonality, food assistance programs and local farm internships.
“For many of the small family farms involved, a publication like the Food & Farm Guide creates the opportunity to reach a newer, wider audience and increase their sales,” Clallam Extension Director Clea Rome said.
The publication originated as the Farm & Garden Resource Directory, a 13-year publication of the Sequim Gazette weekly newspaper and jointly produced by WSU Clallam County Extension and Friends of the Fields, now part of North Olympic Land Trust.
Last distributed in 2011, the project was revived this year through collaborative efforts between the WSU Clallam and Jefferson County extensions.
