About Chews Local

Chews Local is a grassroots journal on cultivating a life in harmony with nature by tuning into the seasons. Here you’ll learn about growing your own food organically, cooking seasonally, practicing herbal traditions, foraging wild food, raising chickens & honey bees, and countryside living. Connecting with nature makes us happier, healthier, and more fulfilled. I want that for you, and I want that for me. I want what you find here to have a positive impact on your mind, body, and spirit. So I hope you’ll join us, as I share our journey on our farm in the Driftless Area countryside, where the food’s less travelled and life’s slowed down. We’re so glad you’re here.
