Johnson County Open Land for Local Farms
JOHNSON COUNTY, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- The Johnson County Board of Supervisors is increasing its focus on local farming.
The county is now accepting applications from interested organizations who want to grow local food on the two acres of land at the county farm on Melrose Avenue.
The board is hoping to help promote the growth of healthy, sustainable food sources in the county. Some local chefs say, food sourced from local farmers is what people in the Iowa City area have come to expect from restaurants.
Clinton Street Social Club Executive Chef Jacob Huth says he loves working with local farmers because of their shared passion for good food.
"When you can see their passion sort of reflected on a plate, I don't know, to me, there's no greater sense of accomplishment," Huth said.
Those interested in applying can find out more through the Johnson County Board of Supervisors.
