Abundant Montana Directory Launches New Tools to TRAVEL LOCAL

AERO Members, Supporters, and Task Forces – We have exciting news for you! 

A new tool is now available for Montana consumers and travelers to explore and plan unique and authentic food and farm experiences! The Alternative Energy Resources Organization (AERO) is excited to announce the launch of the new and improved Abundant Montana Directory, Montana’s premier directory to locally- and sustainably-produced food and farm products!

Partnering with the Community Food and Agriculture Coalition (CFAC) and the Montana Office of Tourism, AERO has launched this new tool to help farmers, ranchers, and food-based businesses and organizations develop and promote agritourism and on-farm opportunities! Such activities include food‐related events, farmers markets, farm-to-table dinners, on‐farm sales, accommodations, farm workdays, tours, and more. Recent improvements include expanded search and filter tools, bike tour routes and a mobile device responsive platform. Now users anywhere can explore agritourism, products, services, certifications and practices with an interactive map and directory, with the ability to search by region, city, county, or statewide. 
Explore the map and directory at www.aeromt.org/abundant 
 
Businesses and producers will find the Abundant Montana site useful in expanding their customer base, marketing on-farm events, posting internship opportunities and in collaborating with other local businesses and producers to attract Montana travelers to an area. Check it out and be inspired by what others are doing around the State to diversify income, increase consumer awareness and become more economically resilient!

The site will be promoted to Montanans and tourists alike to: 

– Search for business types, products and services by region. 
– Find farms and businesses using practices such as organic, biodynamic, permaculture and more. 
– Discover on-farm accommodations, educational opportunities as well as food and farm events. 
– Search for a listing by name. 
– See farm and business descriptions, photos and contact info. 
– Connect to a farm or business website or Facebook page. 
– Coming soon: discover bike and auto tour routes with tour stop locations and details! 
 
We have added more than 100 new listings to the directory in the past 6 months and AERO is entering a major marketing phase to get more locally- and sustainably-produced food and farm businesses on the site and to highlight food and farm opportunities across the State to Montana consumers and tourists alike! If you don’t have an Abundant Montana listing – submit your listing today. The process is easy! Use the form provided at http://www.aeromt.org/abundantsubmit/.
