When we decided to look at the Vegan and Vegetarian foods we knew it would be a task. To be honest, some businesses gave us a stare when we mentioned the feature. The great news, many realized that they needed to offer something and all have started to work on options.
The other thing we noticed with the three farmer’s markets closing there was going to be a need to buy locally grown but we all know that’s not easy in the winter. That’s why last year when WKU Public Radio did their feature on O’Daniel Farm we were excited. If you know of a farm that provides a winter time service of vegetables let us know. After the WKU Public Radio story we went to O’Daniel Farm’s website and signed up for his emails.
