Local vegetable oil!

I found it! Based on a tip from Lee Purdy at Westwind Milling, I looked up Thumb Oilseed Producers. They are located in the Michigan “thumb” region and grow and produce two lines of soybean oil: non-gmo and organic (which is also non-gmo). Their list of retail outlets is small right now, but I am eager to make a trek and buy some. Or better yet, to have someone passing through that area and my area drop some off. I’m also going to suggest that my local food co-op start carrying it!

Similar types of food, but much more local and less yuppie. I’ll give you a tour!
