Spearfish Local is a Black Hills State University initiative that brings together local producers, distributors, purchasers, and consumers of local food and other locally-sourced products. The goal of Spearfish Local is to grow support of the local economy and to work together to achieve greater things than we could as separate organizations.
If you are associated with a business that sells local products, please fill out this form to apply for the free Spearfish Local badge. Badge recipients will be given a window decal to show that your business supports local producers and Spearfish's economy. Businesses who have received the Spearfish Local badge will be listed here.

program is completely free! Thank you to our grantors and sponsors listed below!
The work of Spearfish Local led to the creation of the Black Hills Food Hub in fall 2015, a local food aggregation initiative to bridge the gap between local producers and area cafeterias.
