You did it! With your incredible generosity and support we surpassed our goal of 150 donations! You helped us raise over $2700 to support small farms and food businesses through resources, organizing, and advocacy.
And as promised– Rep. Guzzardi and I are back to try to the infamous Wolf Rayet hot sauce made by Derek and Libby Ervin of Glaciers End Farm– arguably the hottest hot sauce in the state!
Thanks to you, we’ll be developing, designing, and distributing a new and improved 2022 Cottage Food Guide that will help launch small food businesses across the state! Keep your eyes peeled for it’s expected release in February at www.ilstewards.org.
Your generous contribution supports what we do at the Alliance: farmers and eaters working together to solve problems in the food system.
On behalf of Illinois Stewardship Alliance’s board and staff – and all of the farmers, businesses and consumers we represent – thank you!
