When going through the Flavors Under the Big Sky archives, I discovered that this blog was never posted for the show that aired in the summer of 2016. The Yellowstone Valley Farmers Market is about to end for this season, but I wanted to reshare this story about the great resource we have here in Billings. Mostly, I wanted to encourage parents to bring their children to the market and grocery stores, and let them see, taste, touch, smell and experience the bounty from Mother Nature.

Flavors Under the Big Sky: Celebrating the Bounty of the Region replayed a show that aired in the spring of 2018 to pay tribute to Gene Burgad. The world lost Gene on August 14, 2018, a man who gave us food, drink, community and humor. As the co-owner of The Rex Bar and Grill for 34 years, he was ever present to welcome guests who walked into his establishment. He was influential in reforming and refashioning Montana Avenue.

Under the flight approach at Bozeman Yellowstone Airport in Belgrade, there’s another winged specimen found at Cowboy Cricket Farms. Here high octane protein products are being produced from Acheta domesticus or the common house cricket by James and Kathy Rolin, the founders and owners of a business that they advertise “brings bugs to the world in fun and exciting ways.”
