PHOTOS: Making local food at Heron Pond Farms

Posted By on Fri, May 17, 2013 at 10:41 AM

You won't find very much local food at Fred Meyer, Safeway or Walmart. This week, staff writer Heidi Groover explores the lack of accessibility to locally produced food and the people who are trying to change that

The photos below are from Heron Pond Farms, just south of 57th Ave., which produces different varieties of goat cheese. Their goudas, cheddars and tower mountain cheeses are distributed to local restaurants and the Main Market.
