If you are at all interested in farms and eating local, you undoubtedly know about LocalHarvest.org, the granddaddy of ALL food sites related to sourcing farms, farmers markets, restaurants, CSAs and more. Nobody even comes close: Guillermo Payet, my friend (my personal hero) and the founder/designer of the site, gets about 15,000 visits (90,000 page views) PER DAY!
Local Harvest is the greatest: you just plug in your zip code and you are instantly taken to a screen with a map and a list of names that fit your criteria. I'm a self-confessed map geek, and it's just the best.
If you've been reading my work for a while, you will remember that Guillermo was injured last year, and his recovery has been phenomenal. He is embarking tomorrow on his second "Bike 2 Barn" tour, traveling with his beautiful sweetheart, Amber, on motorcycle, visiting farms en route to San Diego and, ultimately, to Austin, Texas, where Amber is from.
On his first Bike-2-Barn, he visited the Colemans and had a great time—hopefully they will be able to hook up again.
They will be blogging about their trip, so you can stay up to date there.
