Today is Small Business Saturday, but supporting small businesses is something you can do every day.
Recently we’ve shared about local businesses taking part in the Victory Cheese campaign, which helps cheese lovers connect with businesses who sell American cheeses. Another way you can support Washington cheesemakers and small producers is by taking Tilth Alliance‘s pledge to shop local this winter holiday season.
The Tilth Alliance is asking everyone to take their pledge to buy items from local farmers, and they’ve posted a great resource to help you do just that—their Holiday Food & Farm Finder. The website (https://eatlocalfirst.org/holiday-food-farm-finder/) has a great holiday gift guide, links to the new Food & Farm Finder, and even features a holiday shopping list you can print for your own reference. Some of our own cheesemaker members are featured in the gift guide and on the Food & Farm Finder.
Check it out, and help support our state’s cheesemakers and farmers this holiday season!
