High Desert Food & Farm Alliance would like to recognize food businesses going above and beyond with local food sourcing and contributions to our Central Oregon community. HDFFA considers local to be food grown, raised and crafted in the Central Oregon high desert.
Our farm and ranch partners voted for food businesses that purchase products regularly from them. Please join us in congratulating their top picks and our 2018 Local Food Champions!
