The Treasure State is home to many farmers and ranchers but how many of us actually get our food straight from the farmers and ranchers?
The Yellowstone Valley Food Hub is looking to change that by bridging the gap between you and those ranchers and farmers.
As a creative fundraiser, baby goat yoga was born. The yoga class was held at Last Chance Pub with "The Sauntering Yogi" Callie Feakin on Wednesday night.
The adorable goats were provided by one of the founding farmers for Yellowstone Valley Food Hub.
The yoga class raised close to $600 for the food hub, adding to the already $23,000 raised.
Food Hub steering member Marguerite Jodry said there are four simple reasons to buy local food. "One, it's good for our bodies. Local food is healthier, fresher. Two, it's good for our planet. You can reduce your carbon footprint. Three, it's good for our economy. Supporting local jobs. And Four, it's good for our community. Building a more vibrant, fun place to live."
She said if that's not enough reason for you, buying local gives you an opportunity to know your farmers and know your food.
You can support the Yellowstone Valley Food Hub by donating online or by participating in the next baby goat yoga.
The next yoga class will be held on June 9 at 11:30 am and 1 pm at Last Chance Pub. You'll need to register beforehand.
