The Riding Mountain Biosphere Reserve (RMBR) “At the Farm Gate”.
We all know that there is a growing trend of people who are following the “100-mile Diet”, eating locally, cooking more meals at home, and becoming aware of sustainable eco-conscious eating and green foods. These same people are concerned about the quality of the food that they are eating, their health and the health of the environment.
The RMBR would like to help these “locavores” to find locally produced, fresh products that many of our small family farms are already producing and selling “At the Farm Gate”, such as farm fresh eggs, grass-fed or free-range beef, pork, and chicken, jams, jellies and preserves, baking, fruits, vegetables, and much more.
Our goal is to help build a stronger rural regional economy by encouraging people who live, work and play in the RMBR region to purchase food and other necessities locally, to get to know where their food comes from and to get to know their farmer. But we need to show them where these products are available.

The “At the Farm Gate” project will:
- Develop a directory and network of people/farms/business that are within the Riding Mountain Biosphere Reserve – or very close to the boundaries – that are selling product “At the Farm Gate”.
- Produce a pamphlet and webpage that will highlight the people, their products and the seasons their products are available.
- Host seminars and workshops
As always, we depend upon and appreciate your assistance in our programs. We would like to have producers from the entire RMBR area represented in this project. If you have any thoughts of people who might be interested or may benefit in participating in this program yourself please let us know (click on the PDF form below) and please feel free to forward this information (Click on the PDF Handout and Poster below) to others as well.
