Glacier Country

Region Description

From Hamilton in the south to Eureka in the north, through the Swan Valley, the Yaak, and east to Cut Bank, Glacier Country represents a diverse cross-section of Montana. Support for locally produced food is strong and can be seen in the numerous farmers markets, farm to institution programs, and agriculture cooperatives. The Montana Food Economy Initiative got its start here and is excited to share projects, outcomes, and lessons learned with the other emerging regions.
