These baskets are available for Blaine County delivery only.

These baskets feature a diversity of local products including squash soup and pear chutney prepared by Chef Esta Hornstein, fresh bread baked with Hillside Grain flour, Ballard Family cheese, pumpkin bread, cookies, Rasberrys ginger beer, and a bottle of Sawtooth Winery wine. Your basket will arrive in a reusable grow basket, perfect for a small-in or out-door growing space to help you grow your own local food all year long. Basket serves two.

Please note that food items are vegetarian friendly but not dairy, egg, or gluten free.

Your Local Harvest Basket for two will be delivered on Friday, October 30. Join other local food supporters by enjoying the contents of your basket while watching Kiss the Ground, the newly released documentary all about regenerative agriculture, streaming on Netflix. Kiss the Ground, speaks to the importance of soil, agricultural practices, and systems thinking when it comes to climate change. It features interviews with world-renowned scientists, medical professionals, farmers, and ranchers who speak to the opportunity held within the regenerative agriculture movement, while footage shows regeneration in action on farms and ranches throughout the world. The documentary, narrated by Woody Harrelson, discusses the history of our current agricultural system and traditional wisdom that can help us change the way we interact with our surroundings.

After you’ve dined on local foods and watched this powerful and uplifting documentary over the weekend, join SVIR staff members Amy Mattias and Lexie Praggastis on Zoom for an informal discussion of the movie and how it relates to the local food work we are doing right here in the Wood River Valley. The discussion runs from 5:30 - 6:30 pm on Monday, November 2nd.

We look forward to sharing this virtual dinner and a movie with you this fall!
