You may have an accountant, a doctor, or even a lawyer, but do you have a Farmer? Is there someone you can identify as providing you and your family with local, safe, healthy and nutritious food. Harvest Moon Local Foods is a partnership between farmers and eaters - a network food buying clubs linked to manitoba family farmers. We offer a unique alternative to the mainstream food system. Eaters are given access to high quality, sustainably produced, fair local foods directly from local farms. Farmers are empowered to protect land, water and soil, ethically care for animals and sustain their livelihood. Become a part of this grass roots initiative to reinvent a more sustainable food system!
Our marketplace brings fresh, healthy, locally grown and produced food to you, in a cost-effective manner on a monthly basis.
How it works
Each month you place your food order through this web site. Deliveries take place monthly on the 4th Saturday (**Deliveries are on the 4th Wednesday in July**) to several different locations in Winnipeg, Brandon and Western Manitoba. These 'buying clubs' are your direct connection to 'your farmer' and other like-minded families in your community. Ordering from Harvest Moon Local Foods helps to build and support our community, preserve our precious agricultural land for future use and provide a sustainable livelihood for small family farms.
