Shop smart, shop local... for every dollar spent with a local merchant 67 cents stays at home. Spend it with a local farmer or producer ... the entire dollar recycles through the local economy. Spend that same dollar at a local big box store and watch all 100 pennies get sucked out of country... not just the local economy... before sundown! Let's recycle a few more dollars each year with our local small businesses on Main Street, the farmers markets and festivals.

Midnight Farmer (Rural USA)

Eastern Idaho ~ days bring wildflowers and tall grasses. Homesteaders along the Oregon Trail began settling productive farmlands and building barns like this one in the northern Rockies in droves around 1843, pursuing the romance, abundance, and a better life “out West”.


Barns - This one is really old time--note the farm wagon.
