Do you have a list of farmers/gardeners in McHenry County that sell their locally grown/produced food & meat products direct to the consumer?

We don't have a list of farmers however there are a couple of CSA's (Community Supported Agriculture) in the area. Salute Farm in Woodstock is one and I am not sure of the others. You may want to contact Rich Brook in Harvard. He sells at the Woodstock Farmer's Market and used to sell directly from his farm. Michelle Aavang of Woodstock sells beef directly to consumers. Check out this web site and you may finds others: Good luck. Extension is hosting a Fruit & Vegetable Conference at the Stratford in Harvard on Feb. 15 and one of our topics is local food systems. There is a lot of interest in finding locally grown food.
