I find myself enjoying this time of year; the weather is really nice and Minnesotans are finally making their way out of hibernation to simply be outside and soak up that vitamin D. I always enjoy having a picnic outside and one of my favorite things to bring to the picnic is cheese.

Lunds and Byerly’s is a Minnesota business with deep roots in our great state. As such, we’re always proud to support our fellow local businesses.
In 2011, we met two brothers – identical twins – who were just starting their very own small business. They were sharing their product, a fresh nutrition bar, at a local food show put on by the community kitchen Kindred Kitchen.
Full of enthusiasm and energy, they presented GüdBar, a refrigerated, fresh nutrition bar unlike anything we had seen. It was uniquely soft, moist and tasty with real fresh fruit inside. As two snack-loving guys, they originally made the bar because they were fed up with other dry bars that seemed like they were made to be stored, not eaten. Thus, they made something fresh! We knew we had to give them a shot.

The other day I was at lunch with four of my Twin Cities natural food retailer friends and we were talking about the organic vs. local debate.
“Organic is better.”
“Local is better.”
“Organic grown and local is better.”
“Who cares? Only local beer matters.”
And on and on this debate went throughout my mostly organic lunch that just happen to have local tomatoes and cheese, with a local beer on the side. Very good I might add.

Have you heard? Lunds and Byerly’s is your 2012 Minnesota Grown Retailer of the Year! We received this award from the Minnesota department of agriculture and Minnesota Grown. We are honored to be this year’s recipient and excited to continue bringing our customers Minnesota grown items throughout our produce departments.
The award was presented by Carrie Tollefson, Minnesota Grown Spokesperson and 2004 Olympian, to Tres Lund, CEO, Lunds and Byerly's
I would like to thank the hard working Minnesota farmers that continue to produce high quality, healthy food. Their passion for growing and their desire to offer all Minnesotans locally produced nutritious food is what makes receiving this award so monumental. I have had the pleasure to get to know many of them over the last few years and their dedication never ceases to amaze me.
