Flathead County has lost thousands of acres of farmland to development over the last couple of decades. Awareness of working landscapes is an important component for protecting them. By buying local food, you help preserve the beauty and agricultural character of the Flathead Valley. We need our farms!

How to Participate
Help maintain working farms and support local businesses by choosing local food. A group of Flathead Valley farmers and eating establishments have created the FarmHands Map of Flathead Farms.
The map is a guide to Flathead farms and locally grown fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains, meat and dairy products. It gives the location and description of over sixty local farms, as well local businesses that offer local products at markets, restaurants and inns. The map connects visitors and residents to working lands and stunning landscapes.
Maps are available at MT Coffee Traders, local chambers, libraries, farmer's markets, and other likely venues.
Whitefish Downtown Farmers Market is May - September every Tuesday from 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM in downtown Whitefish at the North end of Central Avenue.
The map is available at Flathead Valley Chambers of Commerce and several local venues. You can also request one be mailed to you.
