2023-24 Lopez Farm Products Guide
Every two years, LCLT publishes the Farm Products Guide to share the bounty of Lopez. The guide is organized both by goods offered, and by farm name, with a corresponding map location. Use this guide to support local agriculture, understand best practices when visiting a farm, and to find homegrown and homemade goods on Lopez Island. Buying local farm products is a healthy way to nourish yourself, your family and your community. Stop by the Lopez Island Chamber of Commerce to pick up a hardcopy.
