We sell a variety of advertising to help pay for the cost of printing and distributing the Food Guide and to maintain the web site.  If you’d like to purchase or renew an ad, you can do so online now or by calling the St. Joseph County Conservation District at 269-467-6336, ext. 5.

Print advertising

We distributed last year’s guide to over 6,000 people in St. Joseph, Cass and South Kalamazoo Counties.  The guides are free and are generally picked up by people interested in fresh, local food and in information about local recycling options.  As such, they are locally-minded consumers who are ideal customers for your local business!

We offer a variety of ads in our print guide.  The 1/10-page ad is slightly smaller than a business card, but we can generally use a business card for the design. The sizes listed below are width x height.  Please contact us if you have any questions.
