What we can learn from a cooperatively owned local food hub in Logan County
In Episode 9 of the food and farming series Food Trek, Tory Dahlhoff and co-producer Allison Walsh check in with the Central Illinois FarmFED Cooperative in Mount Pulaski, in Logan County.
You'll hear from Jeff Hake, a central Illinois farmer and local foods advocate who helped launch the initiative, and Cindy Jackson, the new manager of the Central Illinois FarmFED Cooperative.
The cooperatively owned local food hub is a place where farmers can bring their products for processing, storage and ultimately for wholesale distribution to retailers and institutions throughout the region.
