I must say in Wichita, KS the answer is no. We do have a Natural Grocers here now that carries local grass fed meat. The closest thing we have to a place to eat out and stay paleo would be Chipotle Grill.

I think hacks is a good forum, but limited. I am wondering what is a quality high traffic site to promote new paleo projects? If it can make an impact in the paleo-sphere you should be able to discuss the ideas not JUST answer questions directly. (more)

Instead of living in a master plan community that surrounded a golf course, how about a farm instead? You could walk and get your raw dairy and fresh eggs. It sounds like a good idea to me.

Will Paleo be lumped into other diets, or will it make long-term success? Will be there be a lot of infighting and egos, or can we unite together on the 80-90% we share in common? (I hope for the latter). Will the internet make us more then just... (more)
