In addition to Eat Arkansas, I am also the editor of the Arkansas Times special publication Arkansas Food and Farm. We've had a blog over there since last summer, but it's only been in the past month that things have really revved up — so if you haven't visited it, or haven't visited it lately, you should check it out. Our publisher, Alan Leveritt, is writing a series of articles about his experiences as a farm owner, and I've got all sorts of info from local restaurants about how they source their ingredients from farmers and producers in the area. If you like Eat Arkansas, I see our Food and Farm blog as a good companion site — and there's no pay wall over there.

This is your Friday open line, so talk about any old thing you want to down in the comments. And maybe click on these Top 5 posts from Food and Farm.

*Coffee Break: A look at coffee sourcing featuring Arsaga's Coffee and Airship Coffee. Ever wonder what's in your cup? Starbucks can't tell you but Ava Arsaga and Mark Bray can.

*Tomato Time: Alan gives us a list of his favorite tomato varieties, and includes info on why they grow so well in Arkansas.

*Root Source: Jack and Cori Sundell of The Root talk about local sourcing.

*Mylo Expands: Stephanos Mylonas talks about local suppliers and what Mylo's expansion means for them.

*Loving Grass: Ross Ferguson is doing farming in a very different way with Wheatgrass Express.

So let us know all about how your week went, let us know what you're eating — and let us know who is growing your favorite local products!
