Grab Your 2024 Edible Prairie Veggie Baskets!

When you purchase one of our baskets you are supporting the Edible Prairie Project farm and our network of local farmers and ranchers, which helps to build a more fair, resilient, and LOCAL community food system! The Edible Prairie Veggie Basket program is a selection of farm fresh, locally-grown produce that customers pick up each week. This is a great option for busy families that would like to support local farmers and producers but don’t have the time to shop at the local farmers market. Basket customers will also be added to our weekly e-newsletter which will include recipes and greetings from your local farmers and producers so you will always know your farmer. **Donations of any amount to provide free and discounted baskets to local families in need are optional but greatly appreciated! Thank you**
