On March 26, '09, CORE sponsored their 4th Films & Forums educational meeting for the public in Bonham. The topic was "Local Food Makes $ense". That is to say, buying food produced by a local grower within a 100-mile radius from where we live means that our food is fresher, may be more nutritional, may run fewer health hazard risks (contamination in factory farming and processing), reduces the environmental impact on the earth's resources, and helps to create a sustainable local economy. (See the link to the "Films & Forums" page on the left.)
One of the challenges for consumers is finding out where they can buy locally grown food. CORE is tackling this challenge by creating a Texoma-Grown Directory for NE Texas. This will include Fannin, Grayson, Cooke, Hunt, & Lamar counties. Other counties may be added, as interest and need arises. If you are a local grower/producer in this area, we want you be included.
You may submit the form online or simply print and complete the form and mail it to CORE, P.O. Box 86, Ravenna, TX 75476. If you prefer sending us the information handwritten, that's OK, too.
Texoma Area Farmers' Markets
We are collecting information about Texoma-Area Farmer's Markets that sell only Texoma-Grown foods. We will post this as a link on the "Texoma-Grown Directory" page of this site. If you have information on a market not included, please
