About Rocky Fork Food Hub
Welcome to Rocky Fork Food Hub! Consider this hub an online Farmers Market where you can order a wide variety of local products direct from the producer.
Like a Farmers Market, this hub allows you to learn about the farmer or producer and understand how their products are grown or made, while getting the freshest possible food for yourself, your family, and your business. Visit each producer's link next to their products to learn more about them and their products.
This hub has been developed to accommodate a growing interest in the purchasing of produce, meat, and other products grown and produced in our area. We aim to help our regional growers establish a strong market for their products, which strengthens the very fabric of our communities - economically, socially, nutritionally, and environmentally.
YOUR LOCAL GROWERS THANK YOU FOR SHOPPING LOCALLY!
Food Hub Producers Offering CSA Shares - sign up soon
Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a system in which consumers pay a farmer for an entire season’s produce in one lump sum at the beginning of the year. In exchange, they receive a portion of whatever crops are available as they become available in a weekly share for the duration of the growing season.
Two of Rocky Fork Food Hub's producers, Shoshone River Farm and Kate's Garden, offer CSA subscriptions for the 2017 growing season. This is separate from the FoodHub ordering, and you need to make arrangements directly with the grower. But it is a fantastic way to ensure a regular supply of the freshest, most seasonal local foods for you and your family.
Shoshone River Farms out of Cody will offer spring, summer, and fall CSA shares delivered to Red Lodge. The Spring Greens CSA Season is approximately 6 weeks long and is anticipated to begin around May 3rd. Sign up for the Shoshone River Farms newsletter by sending an email to SRFCSA2017@gmail.com, with "mailing list" in the subject line to receive updates and notifications about CSA sign up and official start dates for all seasonal shares. In addition to their CSA shares Shoshone River sells produce at the RL farmer's market, and donates wholesome local food to Beartooth Cupboards.
Kate's Garden is located in the Billings Heights. She is currently selling CSA shares and heirloom tomato starts for the 2017 season. Check out her newsletter and buy your share at http://www.scentsofbalance.com/
Take this opportunity to stock up on fresh local eggs, spring greens, hams and roasts, honey, and more, to enjoy during your holiday weekend.
Ordering opens every other Saturday, then pick up your orders the following Wednesday from 3:30-5:00 at Honey's.
Thanks for shopping local!
Meet our New Local Producer - Elevated Harvest
We are now occasionally listing fresh greens from Elevated Harvest in Luther, MT. If you don't see their items listed, you can contact them about joining their CSA for weekly shares at firstname.lastname@example.org. Elevated Harvest grows heirloom varieties of lettuces, leafy greens, and herbs in an upcycled shipping freight. The hydroponic vertical indoor farm is energy efficient and uses 90% less water to sustain a nearly 2 acre pesticide and herbicide free environment. Elevated Harvest offers local, fresh, quality greens year round through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares and at local restaurants, shrinking the distance from farm to fork.
New Featured Product - Locally Made Sorghum Syrup
A unique addition to the Hub, Nash Farms has just added their own Sorghum Syrup - a one-of-a-kind local artisanal product! Grown and made on their farm in Bridger, MT. Great on biscuits and pancakes, and a nutritious, versatile cooking ingredient.
A native of Africa, sorghum has been cultivated in the US since the 1950s. Most sorghum for syrup is currently grown in the south, with Kentucky and Tennessee leading production. Nash Farms is the only sorgum producer we know of in Montana and the surrounding states.
Sorghum is a versatile sweetener. Its often used as a table syrup- poured directly over pancakes, biscuits or bread. Sorghum is also a nutritious cooking ingredient. Usually 2/3 cup of sorghum substitutes for a cup of sugar; it can be substituted cup for cup in recipes that call for molasses, honey, corn syrup, or maple syrup, such as desserts, breads, and sauces.

Shop Local for Your Holiday Celebration!
In cooperation with Honey's Cafe, we are planning an Indoor Farmers’ Market Saturday, November 19th from 10-2 at Honey's Cafe, 209 S. Broadway in Red Lodge,
Thanks to the weather staying mild, we’ve had an abundance of fresh local vegetables this fall. Also, our beef and pork producers have started making all of their products available again. We’re lucky to have regional growers make so much fresh, local food available to the Red Lodge community. It should be a great market.
If you would like to participate as a seller, please contact us at email@example.com, or call 406-425-0433. There will be a $5 fee for vendors. Space is limited, so let us know as soon as possible.
This website will be open for pre-orders starting on the 15th, and those orders can be picked up at the Thanksgiving Market. Register as a user in the upper right of this page to receive emails when ordering opens.
Welcome Back! Fall Harvest is Underway
After taking a summer break, we are ready to get going again with an abundance of products available from our local producers. With the Red Lodge Farmers' Market over, we are one of just a few places to get local food in the area.
Rocky Fork Food Hub aims to get local producers the highest margin on their products, and to give buyers more opportunity to keep their food dollars local. We are entirely volunteer run, and take a very small portion of sales for web, payment processing and insurance costs.
Enjoy shopping here every two weeks, and thanks for supporting your local farmers.
