Boise man's hobby turns into Locavore Network
Copyright: © 2009 Idaho Statesman
Several years ago, Dan Sutton tried to find an old peach orchard that his family used to visit in Kansas when he was a kid.
What started as a hobby on a spreadsheet is now more than 15,000 grower profiles on Sutton's Web site, www.LocavoreNetwork.com. It took two years to complete and was published in mid-May.
Although Sutton had played around with different Web tools for years, building the database was difficult, he said. Everyone had their own way of compiling grower information. He used personal funds to hire Web developer Randall Goya, who understood what Sutton was trying to do.
