Campo Restaurant - Reno, NV

They will find you…..

For the last 11 years I have been pushing myself to use as much local product as possible. At Campo we have come out of the gate in high gear, the Great Basin Food Coop just introduced an amazing program call DROPP that makes this so much easier for myself and other local restaurants who make the choice to spend their money in the community we live and work in. I could go on for hours about all the benefits that this type of buying has from fiscal, health, sense of community, etc, etc. This happened at Moody’s many years ago and now it is happening again…..I get 2 to 3 calls a week from farmers or gatherers, or anyone who knows where some watercress is growing……they call us! Word on the “street” is that we will buy quality products from trusted sources. This is fun and exciting. I get to meet many unique people who love local food and want to share with us. So, i think the more we search for these products, the more these local products will find you! In a perfect world there would be 100 more hours in the week and we could search the local hills and streams ourselves for products to use, but for now I am blessed to be in such a place that we have access to them still. So we will keep working and working hard to get the most local products we can!
