Sustainable Food

Lone Tree Foods began with discussions among farmers in southwest Iowa who wanted to begin selling to wholesale markets like restaurants and grocery stores.  They wanted to work together to eventually aggregate and distribute product.

Lone Tree Foods soon evolved into a farmer-owned LLC, with a focus on connecting its member producers with wholesale buyers in Omaha, Council Bluffs, and Lincoln.   

Erin Schoenberg talks with Mike Hogan about how this organization is helping rebuild the local food system and increase access to local quality food.
